Truman State University has added several new faculty in the Art Department this fall. Francine Fox is starting as an Assistant Professor of Foundations and she will be teaching Drawing, Art Studio Foundations I and II, and sections of Introduction to the Visual Arts focused on Drawing in the fall and on Watercolor in the spring.
Before accepting her position at Truman, Fox taught a range of Fine Art courses at Western State Colorado University, Casper College, the Art Institute of York Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design, Kutztown University of Pennsylvania, Millersville University, and the University of Delaware. She has been a member of the New Wilmington Art Association, The Lancaster County Art Association, Emerging Young Artists, The Casper Artists’ Guild, and the Rochester Contemporary Art Center.
Fox is a nationally- and internationally-exhibiting artist whose work is represented by Kenise Barnes Fine Art in Larchmont, New York. She has exhibited at the Siena Art Institute in Siena, Italy, the Social Sciences Research Council in Brooklyn, NY, the Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science, and Art in Scranton, PA, and the Werner Wildlife Museum in Casper, WY. Additionally, Fox has works in the collections of the Contemporary Painting Museum at Namık Kemal University in Tekirdağ, Turkey, the University Hospital for Albert Einstein College of Medicine’s Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, NY, and the 2016 Wyocity Public Art Project in downtown Casper, WY.
Fox utilizes combinations of figures, gently anthropomorphized animal imagery, traditional and personal semiotic lexicons, and depictions of invisible forces through modified and invented charting symbols to examine the significance and aesthetics of gray areas between opposing ideas linked to identity and epistemology.
The Art Department has added several new faculty this year. Check back on the blog this fall, because we will be highlighting them, along with other events and activities that are going on at Truman.
