The Rising Star Exhibition for Summer 2016, is a fundraiser for Turner house to support our ongoing efforts to restore the facility. Area galleries are asked to select an artist who shows promise and are not currently represented by a North Texas gallery. Last year, we sold 16 artworks. Visitors to the exhibit numbered over 125, offering artists exposure to a new audience.
John Cochran is one of our featured artists for the exhibit.
John Cochran is pursuing a BFA from the College of Visual Arts & Design at the University of North Texas, focusing on drawing and painting. At UNT he has studied under leading local artists and teachers, including Vincent Falsetto (finalist for the prestigious 2007 Hunting Art Prize). Previously at Richland College, Cochran studied under Tom Motley and was one of two students chosen to exhibit his work alongside Professor Motley’s in the end of term Teacher/Student Art Show. Cochran’s paintings and sculptures have been very well received and although still a student, his work is already being acquired by collectors in Texas and Louisiana.
