CIRCUS circus

"Ta Dahh" and " Win your sweetiepie a Kewpie Doll"
Artwork on left by Fred Hunt and 3D by Theresa Calluori. This is the exhibition "Circus Circus"
A theme that brought out some of the finest artists in this area. Who Knew, when I put this call out, with some trepidation. Picasso and Chagall and a myriad of famous artists all dealt with this subject, they had access to performers. Would we also be able to put something together of quality?
Audrey Scott Yana Bem, AnnaMaria Windisch-Hunt, Ring Master Elias, Chia, and two lovely performers from the All Star Circus.
The art started to arrive and became one of the largest collection of circus art assembled in one space, according to Ring Master. The good quality was a surprise factor for me. Monique Lassooij was the first arrival, PJ MILLS participant of the 2009 Venice Biennale brought in 3 fine oils. Danielle inspired by the local performers of the Lipizzaner show she saw. Yana Bem of Prague treated the subject matter as second nature. Theresa Calluori continued with her 3D body series plus created the bearded lady. Fred Hunt had two submissions. Kathey Penner did a large piece of a clown face she found on the internet. It was Fred Hunt who told Kathey that it was Felix Adler. Fred is one of our only participants, who actually lived with the Circus performers in a trailer park, while attending the Ringling School of Art, not just that but he also made an appearance in the Cecil B DeMill's film "The Greatest Show on Earth"
In the spirit of joy that the circus brings to everyone who is young at heart, we decided to have a special art opening just for children. (We served Pink Lemonade and Popcorn) They after all are the collectors of the future. We presented fine art in a fun way in a atmosphere that at times is apprehensive to some adults.
