The Center for the Arts at the Candy Factory is pleased to present “A Carnival of the Absurd,” the highly anticipated solo exhibition of original new works by John Hartt, painter of strange and wonderful things.

A Carnival of the Absurd features new paintings that blend themes of the carnival sideshow, Sunday morning cartoons, conspiracy theory and just plain weirdness in a way that only John can present them. Hartt’s oddball style can be described as a mix of lowbrow art, pop Surrealism and cartoonism.

The dates for this show are September 4 through November 2. The opening reception is Saturday, September 14 from 6-9 p.m. 

Regarding this art show Hartt stated, “I’m really excited to have a show at the Center for the Arts. The art scene in Manassas has really taken off and the Center for the Arts has played a big role in that growth. I’m thankful to be a part of this vibrant creative community.”

They are open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mon – Fri; 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
