Asheville-based Artist Carrie Cox Displays A Quiet Strength In New Exhibition
Her work is intricately detailed, but with a sense of order and calm. The titles of her work are an intimate part of the art and highlight the introspection that goes into each piece. You can see the work inspired by her experiences at the opening reception for A Quiet Strength which takes place on Oct. 19 from 5 p.m.-7:30 p.m. at Wedge Studios Spotlight Gallery on the 2nd floor (129 Roberts St. 3A, Asheville, NC 28801). Cox’s exhibition will be on display through Oct. 31.
“I have always been drawn to the abstract and the study of line, shape and color. My work is the visual expression of thoughts and feelings that often cannot be put into words,” says Cox of her work. “In this exhibition, I am presenting a continuing narrative from one piece to the next. I invite you to look at each piece and explore the movement, suggestion of the shape, and to interject their own feeling and interpretation.”
She stood and waited
tick tock tick tock
like clouds in the sky
Into boxes they went
putting order to chaos
She reached a point of understanding
A quiet strength guiding her through
