Opening Reception: Friday, 6-9pm, August 1st
“The Big Top”, “The Greatest Show on Earth”, these phrases take you back to a time of childhood innocence and wonder. Who hasn’t been seduced by the spectacle, fun, and danger of the exotic world of the circus?
Gallery owner Charlene Newsom brings together 16 artists, from early 20th century to today, who illustrate aerialists, acrobats, jugglers, clowns and sideshow freaks.
From Marc Chagall’s vibrant and lively graphics of circus performers to Josh George’s darkly funny “Bad Things Happen at the Circus,” these thirty five artworks offer the viewer a range of interpretations of one of modern art’s favorite themes, The Circus.
Opening reception is sponsored by Madhouse Underground Productions.
