Cobb Cole Announces the Latest Exhibition of Local Art at Cobb Cole Center, Featuring the Work of Trish Thompson
Continuing in its long standing tradition of supporting local arts, Cobb Cole is pleased to announce that the work of Trish Thompson will be exhibited at the Cobb Cole Center beginning January 13, 2015. Thompson's exhibition is the latest installation in a series of rotating exhibitions featuring art works by local artists in the East Central Florida area. The exhibit will include pieces from Process and Place, the artist's most recent exhibition at Arts on Douglas.
This exhibit represents an evolution in Cobb Cole's local artist sponsorship program, as this is the first time that Cobb Cole will host an exhibit in cooperation with Arts on Douglas. Established in 1996 by artist and Atlantic Center for the Arts founder, Doris Leeper and, artist/benefactor, Ed Harris. Arts on Douglas was originally conceived as a commercial gallery to promote the work and careers of professional artists from the state of Florida. The gallery has since formalized its affiliation with Atlantic Center for the Arts, a not for profit organization supporting the arts in multiple disciplines, thereby combining missions, resources and programs, in order to further facilitate community engagement with the creative arts.
Ms. Thompson has exhibited her work in solo and group shows at the Appleton Museum of Art, Ocala; Polk Museum of Art, Lakeland; Florida State University Museum of Art, Tallahassee; Daytona Beach Museum of Arts and Sciences; Mount Dora Center for the Arts; and Pensacola Museum of Art. Thompson's work is also included in public and corporate collections in Orlando, Atlanta, London, Japan, and the President's Palace in Bogota, Columbia. She recently retired from her position as a professor in the Cultural Arts Department at Daytona State College, where she taught painting, design, and art appreciation courses.
The works will be on display in the firm's 7th floor conference area at Cobb Cole Center through mid-April.
