G.C. Coxe Art Exhibition
The Kentucky Center for African American Heritage proudly presents the Selected Works of G.C. Coxe. The exhibition opens on April 9 and will continue until Aug. 9. Gloucester Caliman Coxe was known as G.C., and lived in Louisville for most of his life. He was the University of Louisville’s first black fine arts graduate. In 1959 he helped found Gallery Enterprises and later the Louisville Art Workshop that provided exhibition and studio space for artists of all races from the mid-1960s to mid-1970s. Coxe is described as a daring experimental abstract painter. This small exhibit includes many of the phases of Coxe¹s development as an artist, spanning from the 1950s into the 1990s and is curated by Dr. Robert Douglas, a mentee and close personal friend. The opening reception will be April 14 from 2 to 4 p.m., and is open to the public. The exhibition will be in the Lecture Gallery at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage, 1701 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to noon and 2 to 5 p.m. For groups of five or more call 502.583.4100.
