Who: Dawn Emerson’s artwork is on display in “Cirque d’Art” at Bend Art Center through Nov. 26.

Dawn Emerson is an artist from Terrebonne who works with pastels, oils and monotype. Her current exhibit, “Cirque d’Art” was inspired by the Ringling Bros. Circus. In the exhibit, she captures abstract images of lions, elephants, horses and acrobats. Emerson mixes monotype and pastels and uses saturated color to create a mirage effect.
