Sale of Joe Cox paintings set for March 7

Mountain Series (1990; acrylic on canvas)

Nine paintings by the late Joe Cox, a long-time North Carolina State University College of Design professor who created a kinetic light sculpture at N.C. State’s D.H. Hill Library known as the Color Wall, will be sold as part of an effort to raise money to restore this unique work of public art.
 
The paintings, which were donated to the Color Wall restoration effort by Cox’s niece, Janice McAninch, and her husband, Skip, of Sante Fe, New Mexico, will be on display beginning Sunday March 7, at the Lee Hansley Gallery, 126 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh. A reception to kick off the exhibition is scheduled from 2-5 p.m. March 7 at the gallery.

 The paintings will remain on display through April 17.

  1. [...] While the city council haggles over the Lightner Center and the hefty chunk of its budget dedicated to public art, further out of town down on Hillsborough Street, a public art corpse awaits reanimation: Joe Cox’s Color Wall. Cox taught at the NCSU School of Design during its glory years, and while he’s primarily known as a painter he also created at least three kinetic light sculptures. The shifting array of color bars at the base of D.H. Hill Library has been (mostly) dark for years now, with only a brief revival. Still, it has survived and could be rebuilt, unlike Cox’s sculpture that was attached to the BB&T on Hillsborough Street–that was simply discarded when they installed the ATM. The fine folks at Goodnight Raleigh have set up the Color Wall site to raise money and raise awareness. In particular, Karl Larson (aka Raleighboy) has led the charge. Now some other fine folks have agreed to sell Joe Cox paintings to help raise the necessary funds. Those of us who can’t afford a Cox painting still benefit by seeing them hanging up at Lee Hansley Gallery. [...]
