"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.
