Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville in Greenville, SC, Offers Works by Dale Cochran

The Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville in Greenville, SC, will present, Painting by Dale Cochran, on view from Mar. 1 - 31, 2012. A reception will be held on Mar. 2, from 6-9pm.

South Carolina native Dale Cochran is an artist that has a gift for revealing the uniqueness and beauty in things seemingly plain, illuminating the stories and spirits behind the ordinary – an old barn, a basket of pecans, a child caught in a moment of imagination, a crayon on pavement.

As a high school student, Cochran experienced his first formal training from Liz Smith-Cox. “I had no idea what perspective or contour drawing meant,” Cochran says. As a junior, he broke his drawing arm playing football just before the school year started. When he approached Smith-Cox about dropping the class because he wouldn’t be able to use his arm for a while, her response was, “That’s ok, you can draw with your left hand.” So that’s what he did.

Cochran continued his studies at Anderson University, receiving an Associate of Arts and went on to Winthrop University and received his Bachelor of Visual Arts. He has been professionally involved in the arts for more than 30 years as an award-winning artist, illustrator, instructor and graphic designer. Cochran currently is on the board of the Southern Watercolor Society and holds the position of senior creative director in the department of creative services at Clemson University.

Cochran’s award winning creative works are part of public and private collections and have been featured in numerous exhibitions and publications. “When we take time to look and listen to the world around us, the commonplace and ordinary become extraordinary.”
