"Mississippi Scenes" Traveling Watercolor Art Exhibition:
Thomas L. "Tom" Cochran was a multi-faceted artist.
Experts considered him a master of watercolor; he also was a
sculptor, woodcarver and designer. A strong sense of family
and love of country are recurrent themes in Cochran's works.
He created familiar scenes of rural and small town Americana.
His poignant paintings of weather-worn buildings and faded,
forgotten, once-prized possessions evoke a feeling of nostalgia.
Cochran was best known for his finely detailed style. His paintings
leave viewers wondering if they are looking at paintings or
photographs; "creative realism" best described his
execution of the watercolor medium. The traveling exhibition
opens at the museum on April 16, 2013 and is on display through
May 18, 2013.
