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? Join us for the opening party and see human animal hybrids: Part Woman, Part Tiger on First Friday, August 1 from 6 pm-9 pm.

Gallery owner Charlene Newsom brings together 16 artists, ranging from early 20th century to today, who illustrate aerialists, acrobats, jugglers, clowns, and sideshow freaks. The exhibit includes five stone lithographs by 20th French artist Marc Chagall (1887-1985), each a vibrant and lively depiction of circus performers. Artist Selma Lee (1879-1968) contributes a charming and folksy 1940's watercolor "County Fair." Josh George's acerbic wit gives us the darker side with "Sometimes Bad Things Happen at the Circus" and Robert Broderson portrays the freakish life of the sideshow in "Circus Lady with Donkey Ears", "Snake Charmer's Son" and "Jesters". Louis St. Lewis exhibits "The World's Smallest Painting on the Head of a Pin." These 40 artworks offer the viewer a range of interpretations of one of modern art's favorite themes, The Circus.
