Oxford celebrates Rosenbaums' art

An arts series highlighting the talents and contributions of Art Rosenbaum and Margo Newmark Rosenbaum recently opened at Oxford College.

On display until Feb. 25 in Oxford’s Hunt Gallery are paintings, drawings and photographs by the Rosenbaums, depicting the Southern musical traditions they have documented over the years, especially rural blues.

“Sing My Troubles By,” a documentary film on the Rosenbaums’ art and field research, was shown on Jan. 21. Their research led to the 2009 Grammy Award-winning box set Art of Field Recording, Vol. I and Art of Field Recording, Vol. II.

On Thursday, Feb. 18, Art Rosenbaum, himself a multi-instrumentalist on banjo, fiddle, guitar and harmonica, will perform with Tony and “Guitar Dave” Bryant at 8 p.m. in Oxford’s Williams Hall.
