Let’s go to the circus!

Circus acrobat paintings and “contradictory” wood engravings can be seen during Red Deer’s First Friday gallery openings for September. In the spirit of Toulouse-Lautrec, artist Dawn Saunders Dahl is tackling circus subject matter in her Prairie Circus Series: Figurative Works exhibit. Her oil paintings of circus people can be seen at the Kiwanis Gallery, operated by the Red Deer Arts Council.
