"Smithsonian Circus Arts"
Welcome Back to Another BobBlast!
By now, you may have heard or read our latest good news!
My Circus-themed paintings and I have been invited to exhibit this week in Washington, DC at the Smithsonian Circus Arts Folklife Festival on the National Mall of the United States.
The huge colorful circus tents and flags are up at the Smithsonian Mall and filled with over 700 famous circus performers ready to go! My part is being in my "happy place," mingling with the greatest living circus acts, while painting under the Big Top.
And wouldn't you know it... the July/August 2017
Smithsonian Magazine issue front cover features (what else?)
THE NEW AMERICAN CIRCUS. The story features artists nationwide who are reinventing the Big Top. I am beyond
delighted to be invited to participate.
This good news all fell together like dominoes... At the opening of my
Magic Circus Family exhibition at the sarasota Art Center Gallery, the
Curator of the Smithsonian Circus Arts program walked in. We talked -
I said YES. And that's how I was invited to exhibit and paint at the Circus.
Thank you for your enthusiastic responses and encouragement. And remember, every once in awhile you gotta go to the Circus or you'll go nuts!
Keep your brushes wet!
