Circus founder's art exhibition for tour finale

Where: Fennells Farm, Stroud, GL6 7NE

When: Thursday, September 27, to Sunday, September 30

Giffords Circus is excited to be hosting a very special art exhibition and sale at Fennells Farm on the last weekend of its 2018 tour, from September 27-30.

The artwork is a series of observation work from Nell Gifford's sketchbook. 

The artwork varies from sketches in pencil to oil on canvas and all has been produced during the 2018 tour of My Beautiful Circus. Everything is also available to purchase online.

Nell Gifford said: "Painting and drawing is something I do to relax and recover and I love it. I believe that if you draw things, they come true."

Also exhibiting is the Giffords Circus Artist in Residence for 2018, Gregory Smart, who himself is from a renowned circus family. Greg's work will be exhibited alongside Nell's and also available for purchase.
