Penn State Altoona to present artwork of Meghan Cox

The exhibition of work, "Shelter," by Meghan Cox will run March 15 to April 17, in the Sheetz Gallery of the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts at Penn State Altoona. A reception will be held 3 to 5 p.m. March 15 in the Titelman Study of the Center on campus.

Cox, assistant teaching professor at Penn State Altoona, received her bachelor of fine arts in painting and bachelor of arts in art history from Indiana University in Bloomington in 2003. She received her masters of fine arts from the University of Pennsylvania in 2005. She has taught at several universities including Temple and Drexel. She has displayed her work within the United States and in Seoul, South Korea.

"Shelter" highlights Cox’s own struggle with creating meaningful or relevant paintings. Cox acknowledges her jealousy of painters she considers to have created “lush and profound” works.

The Galleries are open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and before and during all performances. For further information, call the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts at 814-949-5452 or visit the Penn State Altoona website at
