New Old Signs to be Exhibited in Sales Pavilion of Fasig-Tipton Saratoga

Cross Gate

New Old Signs from John Cox will be on display at the Cross Gate Gallery Exhibit at the Fasig-Tipton Sales Pavilion in Saratoga Springs, NY from Aug. 1-14

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Thursday, July 17, 2014) – For the second consecutive year, John A. Cox has reached an agreement with Lexington-based Cross Gate Gallery, to exhibit an exclusive collection of New Old Signs at the Fine Sporting Art and Sculpture Exhibition at the Humphrey S. Finney Sales Pavilion in Saratoga Springs, Ny.

Cross Gate Gallery has conducted the exhibit in Saratoga Springs for over 20 years. The historic Saratoga race meeting and the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga and New York Bred Sales attract some of the nation’s most renowned Thoroughbred horse owners along with some very serious art collectors.

Last year was the first year that the New Old Signs were exhibited; 10 signs were selected by Cross Gate Gallery President Greg Ladd along with Cox and each one sold well before  the exhibit’s end. This year, Cox is working on some new signs specifically for the occasion.

“I’m trying to recreate some of the most historic landmarks of the area in the form of new old signs,” Cox said. “We are also looking at selling some form of new old signs in the gift shop of the Racing Museum.”

Cox’s business,Thorough-Graphic Signs Inc., has made every plaque for the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame, also located in Saratoga Springs. Cox mentioned that the two parties were close to an agreement for the New Old Signs on Thursday.

“Saratoga always brings out the best in horse racing,” Cox said. “I’m just lucky to have experienced it and hope to continue to be involved for years to come.”
