Stamford,Ct--From its barkers and big cats, to its trapeze artists and sideshow marvels, there are few events as rich as a circus when it comes to creating a tableau of images from which artists can draw inspiration.

"We thought it would be a lot of fun for everyone, the artists and everyone who comes to see the show," said Paul Larson, one of the two co-chairmen for "Under the Big Top," a new exhibition at the Loft Artists Association galleries and studios in Stamford. "We also thought it would capture the capabilities of all the artists and their various styles."

The show, which features works from about 30 of the association's 40 members, promises to bring out the magic, whimsy and, at times, oddity of the circus, the Greenwich artist said of the show that runs through Sunday, March 9.
