A Group art show inspired by the circus days of yesteryear. Artists are invited to interpret this theme in their own medium and style. taking inspiration from vintage circus art, Carnivales and freak shows. Look to Movies and novels (“water for Elephants”, the Cirque du freak series, “The night circus”, “Carter beats the devil”, “geek love”, “the circus in winter” also look to Television shows like HBO’s Carnivale, which is still available on demand, and the upcoming 4th season of american horror story entitled “freak Show”.
As usual this will be a family friendly show…however given the theme…boundaries can and should be pushed. please avoid gratuitous nudity, violence or sexual content.
the exhibit will take place at drips…(art gallery-coffee shop-meeting room) 1010 south main street, council bluffs iowa 51503.
For the opening night of this show, we will feature performance artists, and musicians as well as 2d and 3d artists. there will also be opportunities for art demos during opening night.
