Harry Cohen’s beginnings as an artist started in Boston’s South End in the 1930’s. Harry Cohen describes himself as, “…just a kid from the South End,” then says in a manner neither self-effacing or vain…”a kid who was never unsure… a kid who was gifted and knew it.”
After serving in WWII, Harry used his GI bill benefits to study painting at the Boston Museum School with teachers Karl Zerbe and Oskar Kokoschka. It was through their influence that he started his “Love affair” with art.
In the 1950s Harry moved to California where he continued painting and began exhibiting.
Now at age 94, Harry continues to paint in his studio in Woodacre amid the sanctuary of the California Redwoods.
We are thrilled to welcome Harry back to the Boston area for an exhibit of his paintings on paper (POP) for the month of May.
Please join us on Thursday, May 16th | 6-8pm for an artist reception.
Works will be on display through May.
