Transformation and Creation

Trinity Gallery for Arkansas Artists

August 14 through November 9, 2008

Opening reception on September 12, 5 – 8 pm, in conjunction with 2nd Friday Art Night


Natural State by Lam Tze SheungTransformation and Creation pairs the talents of two diverse artists, Lam Tze Sheung and V. L. Cox. Sheung, originally from Hong Kong, is an accomplished visual artist whose work is executed in various media from classic Chinese ink and brush to mixed media.  When she moved to the United States, Sheung found everything new to her, and learned about her new environment by watching. Her art reflects the transformation from the passive state of watching to the more active state of seeing.

Rambler by V.L. CoxV.L. Cox's work sets in motion an unrivaled interplay of textures, forms and colors, which depict strong emotions. She writes, "If you're not held back by society's expectations and rules, and you're not afraid, you are free to create from the soul."

Some of the works are available for purchase in the Museum Store.
