Penelope Fox's "Lips Go" at LuminArte Design Gallery

On August 6, Andy Warhol would have turned 83, and to commemorate the iconic artist's life, LuminArte Design Gallery installed a collection of works from modern artists inspired by Warhol. What Would Andy Do? is an exhibition of works from local, national and international artists who apply Warhol's pop stylings in their art but also approach their subjects with contemporary sensibilities.

Warhol had a preoccupation with lips, and that's probably most noticeable in his series of Marilyn Monroe prints. Pennsylvania native Penelope Fox pays homage to Warhol's love of lips in a work titled "Lips Go." The acrylic on canvas piece feels modern yet retro at the same time, and we think Warhol would give it his stamp of approval.

What Would Andy Do? continues through September 9. Call 214-914-4503 or visit for more information.
