I have two paintings in the latest Super Wonder Gallery extravaganza, The Super Big Top. This circus-inspired art show will feature the works of dozens of artists, plus games of chance, a museum of sideshow oddities, and circus freaks.
Tigress is a classic Rob Elliott painting – sex and violence and cigarettes and animals – on a bright blue canvas.
Sideshow features an unlikely duo of circus animals, a goat and a poodle. It’s a fun piece, and is custom framed with white-painted pine.
The Super Big Top Opening Reception is this Friday and Saturday, 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Admission is $10.
