Door to the past

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.
