A expressive night scene is shown with a dark green sky that consumes the upper half of the work. Brilliant lights below outline bring a ferris wheel out of darkness and illuminate a building side. Small figures in the foreground approach the entrance, passing the silhouettes of automobiles. To the far right drifts a crescent moon.  Lieth Ross’ The Fair evokes a nostalgic, warm and eerie piece all in one work.
