Davis Gallery presents "RopeTrix," featuring new work by local artist B Shawn Cox. For his third solo show, Cox has created campy, bold and colorful pieces that revision the iconic men and women who have mastered the lasso in one way or another.

A rope delights fans at a rodeo, skillfully wrangles cattle on the open range or can challenge or manifest an illusion of control. The exhibition explores the utility of a cowboy’s lasso intertwined with fetishization of control. The show includes paintings on fabric, paper cuts, folded paper, leather, rope and lenticular collages.

The exhibition will remain on display through February 17.
