Kate Freeman Clark Art Gallery presents the art of Vadah Cochran on Sunday, September 14 with an Opening Reception at 4:00 PM – 6:30 PM.
Noted Photorealist Glennray Tutor of Oxford, one of Vadah’s painting colleagues, will be at the reception to talk about Vadah’s painting and his many other talents.
Vadah Cochran’s paintings should be of special interest to Holly Springs residents because of his life-long focus on images of his hometown.
Vadah studied art in England, France and Germany after World War II. He created his first mural for the Army Air Corps while stationed in England. His murals adorn Wakefield and Dunvegan, the home that he and his wife, Doris, restored.He studied art at the Memphis Academy of Art and the Art Students League in New York.
Though he was by profession an English and drama professor at Baldwin College and the University of Memphis, Vadah’s interests included gardening, architecture, and acting, appearing in several theater productions, but his love of painting was a continuous thread throughout his life.
Vadah’s paintings will be exhibited in the Gallery through October 10.
Tickets to the Exhibit Opening Reception are $20 for Non-Members and $10 for Members. Ticket and memberships can be purchased at the door or Online at http://www.katefreemanclark.org/apply_online2.html
