If you want to learn how to swing from your knees or walk a tightwire, then you should try out aerial, or circus, fitness. Circus has seen a resurgence throughout the U.S. in the past several decades; circus schools and companies have been opening everywhere.

On Friday, February 8th, a new exhibit will go on display in the gallery of the Arts Place Portland Center. The show, entitled Invocation, features the work of artist Stephanie Robertson. Her work on hand-dyed and printed fabrics explores the layering effect of color, pattern, sewn and drawn lines, movement and shape. The inspiration for these fabric and paper constructions comes from Robertson’s interest in spirituality, ritual, traumatic brain injury, nature, music and the power of women. This exhibit will remain on display through March 10th. The public is welcome to tour this exhibit during Arts Place business hours.
