"Bus Ride to Eternity"
A retrospective exhibition of artwork by the late Sioux City artist Marvel Kohlhof Cox will be on display Thursday, Aug. 18, through Sunday, Sept. 18, at the Eppley Art Gallery. A reception will be held on Friday, August 19, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The free exhibit and reception are open to the public.
The exhibit will feature representational and symbolic landscape, cityscape, and figurative acrylic paintings and drawings on canvas, on loan to Morningside College from private collections.
Cox grew up on a farm near Climbing Hill, Iowa, and later moved to Sioux City. She
studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, Calif., and earned a degree in fine arts and English from Briar Cliff University. She was a member of the Artists Cooperative on Historic Fourth Street during the 1970s and was a founding member of the Sioux City Artists Guild. She traveled and worked in India, France, and Mexico. Her work has been exhibited locally, regionally, and in New York. In 1999, Cox and Lisa Damon self-published “Ageless Women: A Collection of International Writings and Art.”
Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Gallery hours will be extended to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for this exhibit only.
