Take home a piece of art on Sat, Nov 1, from the Meadows Museum benefit called Cirque de Shreve

With circus entertainment at a fine Fairfield house (2745 Fairfield), festive music, and gourmet fare, the Friends of Meadows present a benefit called Cirque de Shreve on Sat, Nov 1. It opens at 6:30 pm and spins til 10, says Sherry Kerr.

"Measure a spot in your abode that needs a piece of art," says Talbot Hopkins. "Area artists have been generous in supporting Meadows by donating paintings, prints, photos and sculpture. Notable artists such as Bill Joyce and the late Clyde Connell are among those whose work is at auction in the Carriage House on the site of the former Pinewold Manor, corner of Fairfield and Kirby."

Proceeds from the event and art auction will benefit the Friends of the Algur Meadows Museum of Art, whose mission is to support the museum as a center of art and culture in the South, says Rachel Hill.

Tickets for Members of the Friends of the Algur Meadows Museum are $75 each; non-members are $100 each. Tickets purchased with a credit card include a processing fee at

Says Scarlet Hendricks, "Costume, festive, or casual attire, not to worry." Valet parking.

One bids. One takes home a fresh piece of art.
