Christa Hughes of Australia's Circus Oz
We talk with singer Christa Hughes, the ring-mistress of Australia's Circus Oz, a company of rough-and-ready, multi-skilled acrobats, jugglers, clowns, dare-devils and musicians, who will play in Galveston's Grand 1894 Opera House this weekend. We also look at recent digital photographs by artist Eric Michael Jones which are currently on view in the exhibition The Buffalo Hunters at the Art League Houston. . .
