January 11 thru February 28, 2002 Rogue Gallery & Art Center 40 South Bartlett Street, and downtown Medford venues. 

Ashland artist Alicia Mannix will join area artists and writers in a 16-acre statement about terroristic atrocities of September 11.

The show, "Visual Rescue: Artists Respond to 9/11," will take up acreage in downtown Medford, using area equivalent to ground zero where once stood the World Trade Center towers.

Mannix will show a new acrylic titled "There Is No Place Like Home," which she painted after hearing about the Visual Rescue exhibit. The exhibit's organizers called for expressions derived from the bombings of September 11.

"I did not want to dwell on the horrors of it but concentrate on the impact -- the bonding impact -- that it had on the nation," Mannix said or her approach. It also shows the range of emotions she felt and recognized in others.

Mannix grew up in Poland and moved to Oregon from Maryland in 1979. She has shown in Portland, on the coast and in Ashland and will exhibit paintings in January at Walker Elementary School in Ashland.
