The New York-based conceptual artist's Durham show, Abstrakt Aggregate, will feature the premiere of his film Saturation Station, and examples of his artwork (see "Item No. 2002," pictured). Call 684-8749 for details.


The late Joe Cox was an N.C. State University School of Design professor whose acrylic paintings were exhibited in such diverse environs as the 1939 World's Fair in San Francisco, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, and SAS Institute in Cary, where he was commissioned to do interior murals. Cox was a quietly commanding presence as an artist and teacher since he arrived at N.C. State in 1945. His style evolved gradually from cubism in the 1940s to a combination of realism and abstraction in the '50 and '60s to more architectural forms in his later years. Triangle critic Max Halperen said of the artist in 1986: "Just as we think we have Cox codified, we discover that we have been lured to a further stage." See some of his early and late works at Raleigh's Lee Hansley Gallery through March 2. Call 828-7557 for details.
