It’s a busy year for Cynthia Norton. Not only does her work appear in Contraption, but also in the exhibit, Cynthia Norton: Freedom Rings Placed Within, at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. The exhibit, which runs from March 3 – May 27, 2012, juxtaposes PAFA’s fine art collection with references to Norton’s Southern upbringing and Kentucky culture. Check out the full exhibition description on PAFA’s website.

We just can’t get enough of Cynthia Norton and C. Grant Cox III. Not only are Norton and Cox participating in Contraption, but their work appears in the DCCA’s satellite exhibit, Young Country. Curated by Maiza Hixson, Young Country addresses rural themes in contemporary American art. The exhibition has been traveling around the East Coast, stopping at the Quonset Hut in Louisville, KY, and the University of the Arts’ Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery. Young Country is currently at the Salisbury University Galleries until February 16. The show returns to the DCCA in September. Check out the DCCA’s website for more info and our artists page for the bios of Norton and Cox.

Look what arrived at the DCCA over the holidays!
