Three rings of artistic spectacle

. February 27, 2013.

No form of entertainment marries fear and adoration the way a circus does, so it's a shame that fewer troupes pitch big tops in the United States every year. Those still thirsty for freak shows and acrobatics can see Circus, a new art exhibit opening at Gallery Project on March 28th, featuring work by local national and international artists. Circus promises to touch on the spectacles and deceptions in the three ring tradition. Local portrait artist Joe Levickas and aerialist Erin Garber Pearson curated Circus. For those thinking of running away from home and joining a troupe, Pearson will teach a beginner Aerial class at Ann Arbor Aviary. Exhibit runs March 28-May 4th. Opening Reception March 29th, 6-9pm. Gallery Project, 215 South Fourth Ave. 734-997-7012. www.thegalleryproject.com—JS
