The unusual acts found in sideshows and the circus have captivated the hearts and minds of people for hundreds of years. The Off-Rhode Studio is celebrating those fascinations as well as showcasing the differences that make us unique in Amazing Marvels- a collection of work inspired by sideshows, circuses and carnivals.

Over 25 artists will have work on display ranging from peep show booths, to mixed media assemblage to the traditional painted banners featuring sideshow attractions.

Second Saturday Workshop: To coincide with the March 8th opening of Amazing Marvels, local crafter Beth Baldwin will host a free workshop where you can release your inner Calder by making circus animals out of common materials found around your household.
