Welcome back to Circus Gold, we are pleased to have you here with us on the internet, with that said, please enjoy a new lighter look at an Art Show that we happened across… Ready? Time Machine Clean, this time we are headed back all the way to September of ’09 :
While the new Circus Gold Lighter Look, which is based on our unpublished mission, is less judgmentally influential on the viewer than our contemporaries, I’ll type 2 things:
1)I am weary of drawings that do not bear erasure marks.
2)I like art that features cut stones, gems, diamonds, etc..
“Your Heart is not a Museum” is Levi Dugat and Leah DeVun’s second collaborative gallery show. Taking inspiration from traditional craftmaking, romance novels, daytime television, and Southern kitsch, Dugat and DeVun’s graphite drawings offer fantastical and iconographical portraits of their extended band of family, friends, and favorite soap stars.”
Matthew Rodriguez, Tim Kerr, Michael Sieben, & Russ Pope…. Three Austin Knights, and some dude from Southern California.
Opened October 3rd, 2009 and shows through November 1st, 2009

Circus Gold’s own, Matthew Rodriguez, with fellow Austin Artists, Michael Sieben and Tim Kerr have teamed up with the Pope of Southern California to create a special Art show, for you, the people, but in SF, so I guess you, the people, got to go there to see it.
Inevitably balleresque, this Artshow is worth your heart felt gaze and if, then maybe, your hard earned Cheddar. Check it out or just spend yet another afternoon eating ballpark nachos and yelling at little leaguers…
Previously known facts about Needles and Pens are sparse in my mind other that Monica Canilao painted there exquisite sign and that a drawer that may or may not have been from the blow laden desk of Sherlock Holmes which I purchased with artistic intentions and then gave to famed Canadian Artist, Other, who then painted a dreaming hobo on it and hung it in his show, at Needles and Pens.
In the past here on Circus Gold, we’ve talked about the importance of Friendship (Friends, buncha bastards) and how beneficial it can be to one’s on well being.
Well, Tim Kerr, concurs. In fact, he orchestrated an Art Show around this belief, and even named it….
The Show included Friend Artists Rich Jacobs, Bill Daniel, Michael Sieben, Cynthia Connolly, and Kerr himself. The show took place at Domy Books, in East Austin. Yeah, that’s right, ‘took place’, so there is no way in hell you can see it now, except for here, on Circus Gold, and various other web outposts whom we will not mention.
“This exhibition was conceptualized by Tim Kerr, one of the five exhibiting artists. Simply put, we have been friends for years and our friendship was struck by the admiration of the other by the artwork they had done and the vision we each have.”
