Myrtice makes the New York Times
In a generally favorable review of the exhibition "Coming Home! Self-Taught Artists, the Bible and the American South," the May 13, 2005 New York Times made particular mention of Myrtice West and her painting "Satan Takes Over." The painting was pictured in the Times, along with pieces by three other artists. The Times' reviewer wrote: "Also wonderfully visionary is Myrtice West's 'Satan Takes Over,' in which the giant Oz-style face of a pointy-eared fellow is layered over an allegorical rural landscape, to frightening yet comical effect." Chicago collector Bob Roth owns the painting. The exhibit, organized by Carol Crown (who edited Wonders to Behold: The Visionary Art of Myrtice West) and the Univ. of Memphis Art Museum, is the premier exhibit at the new Museum of Biblical Art in New York. It will remain at the Museum through July 2005.
