V.L. Cox is announcing an upcoming show at the Thea Foundation in which she’ll be showing her screen door portraits exclusively. No abstracts in this show. Cox frames paintings of people — many African American women — looking through screen doors, a nostalgic representation of an earlier time in the South. From a news release:
“I hope to portray a Southern, more simple way of life. I hope you can appreciate the originality of each door and the historic value they represent. I take great pride in doing something so unique in the art world that is a reflection of our American past. — V.L. Cox”
Part of the proceeds from the Oct. 7-9 show (private showing on the 6th) will go to Thea’s Art Closet, which gives art supplies to the public schools.
