Cook’s show features oil paintings of iconic Columbus signage, including Rife’s Market and the Fireproof Warehouse. Her hope is to “take the viewer beyond the literal wording of a sign, and emphasize the subtleties of light, shadow, color and shape,” she said in a release.

The exhibit opens this Friday, May 2, and runs through June 1. Sharon Weiss Gallery will host an artist’s reception from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday to introduce Cook, a Nashville native and CCAD grad, and her work.
