Come snow or whatever, V.L. Cox will unveil her monumental painting "River Bridge" at South on Main on  Thursday, March 5. The event runs 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the happening restaurant at 1304 Main St.

South on Main celebrates upscale Southern Cuisine prepared by Matt Bell, a fan of Cox's work; Cox's "Images of the American South" series celebrates our rural past with works that combine screen doors, Grapette signs and images of men in overalls, women in aprons and hunting dogs (for example).

She's also known for large-scale abstracts, and for an immense amount of energy: She's working on an "End Hate" installation that addresses the state's new terrible, mean-people-pandering law that forbids cities and towns from passing anti-discrimination laws. She plans to drive the doors — labeled whites only, colored only, homeless only, etc., and one saying human beings — around the state Capitol, as a form of peaceful protest. Some of those dunderheads out there will think she's a construction worker getting ready to install the signs.
