Event Description

Sideshow surveys the satirical and often irreverent imagery of artist O. Gail Poole. Poole created enigmatic and witty caricatures of the foibles of American culture over the last two decades of his career using a style influenced by diverse influence from the Renaissance to Vincent Van Gogh. Sideshows are, by definition, diversions that use the spectacular, unusual, or bizarre to entertain or distract the masses, and Poole’s work reminds us that the sideshow is everywhere we look.
