3. You are invited to HEAVEN+HELL. Free and open to the public. (Norbert Kox is represented in both sections, with a total of seven of his Apocalyptic Visual Parables).

Chicago: Heaven and Hell, February 10 - June 30, 2012. http://www.art.org/

HEAVEN+HELL is an inspired collaboration of creative thinking and practical dynamics from two very different organizations: Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art and the Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA). The exhibition will serve as a bridge between the two museums with the Hell portion of the exhibition taking place in Intuit’s Galleries at 756 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL and Heaven taking place at LUMA, 820 N. Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL.

The themes of heaven and hell are frequently addressed in outsider and intuitive art. Outsider artists’ perspectives range from illustrative, word-laden drawings to stylized, sculptural versions of figurative images that populate their perceptions of the heavenly and the hellish. Self-taught and outsider artists often use the themes of heaven and hell not as concepts, but as broad visualizations that may be invented, drawn from popular media or the Bible, or influenced by their religious upbringing. HEAVEN+HELL seeks to explore the breadth of expression in self-taught art with these themes in mind. The exhibition will feature work by American artists such as Minnie Evans (1892-1987), Howard Finster (1916-2001), William Edmondson (c. 1870-1951), Sister Gertrude Morgan (1900-1980), William Blayney (1918-1985), and Norbert Kox (1945 – ), among many others.

Co-curated by Jan Petry, Exhibitions Chair at Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art and Molly Tarbell, Exhibition Curator, Loyola University Museum of Art, the exhibition features 165 works of art by 54 artists as well as several anonymous works. This exhibition is accompanied by a 36-page catalog with an essay by Jerry Bleem, a Franciscan Friar, Catholic Priest, and Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Fiber and Material Studies of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The catalog is available at both venues for $12. http://www.art.org/

5. The newest Apocalypse House book, A SPECK OF ATLANTIS - BIMINI: THE TOP OF GOD'S MOUNTAIN, by visionary artist Norbert H. Kox is now available (8 1/2 x 11 paperback, 118 pages, 149 color images, printed in USA on archival paper) http://nkox.homestead.com/BooksByNHK.html

This writing connects the last remaining speck of Atlantis with a tiny island in the Atlantic called Bimini, and presents many of the artworks created by Kox on the Island over a period of eleven years. Along with the Apocalyptic Visual Parable paintings inspired directly by the Bimini setting - including esoteric energy paintings. The Picture Perfect Jesus series (painted in Bimini) is also included in this volume.

Many of the Picture Perfect Jesus images are included in A SPECK OF ATLANTIS - BIMINI: THE TOP OF GOD'S MOUNTAIN. Several of the images appeared in the Raw vision article mentioned below, along with a detailed description of how they came to be:

"Masquerade" is an article by David Damkoehler, in the Raw Vision 2008 Winter Issue #65 (December), about Norbert H. Kox's artworks depicting Warner Sallman's Head Of Christ. Damkoehler offers insights into understanding the subversive imagery in Kox's paintings: "In 1992 Norbert H. Kox inherited a framed print, a portrait of Christ that had hung in a prominent position in his parents' home in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This portrait was to inspire a series of skillfully executed works that exploit visual and textual puns to illustrate Kox's deeply skeptical attitude towards organized religion. ..."

6. The controversial painting by Norbert H. Kox, titled, "The End of Days," is available in prints of various sizes on paper or canvas. If you are interested please follow this link: http://www.zazzle.com/mrnoah*
