Staniar Gallery presents New York-based artist Mark Fox

wl-universityWashington and Lee’s Staniar Gallery is pleased to present “Not In This Fool’s House,” an exhibit of recent work by New York-based artist, Mark Fox. The show will be on view Jan. 12 through Feb. 11.

Fox will give an artist’s talk on Tuesday, Jan. 20, at 5:30 p.m. in Wilson Hall’s Concert Hall which is free and open to the public. The lecture will be followed by a reception for the artist.

Fox works in a variety of media, drawing on source material mined from personal biography, popular culture, news media, historical and religious texts, comic books and advertising. His drawings, sculptures, videos and installations are united by his methodical process, use of iconography and exploration of the relationship between destruction and construction.

For the exhibition in Staniar Gallery, Fox will present several sculptural pieces, drawings and a selection of films and animations.

Fox received his M.F.A. from Stanford University and his B.F.A. from Washington University in St. Louis. His work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among other institutions, and he is represented by Robert Miller Gallery in New York City.

Staniar Gallery is located on the second floor of Wilson Hall, in Washington and Lee University’s Lenfest Center for the Arts. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call (540) 458-8861.
