Jim Cobb Painting

The Depot Gallery will open “Variations on Themes,” an exhibit of paintings by Dr. Jim Cobb, with a reception from 6 to 9 pm in conjunction with the July 14th, 2017 2nd Friday Art Walk and The Depot's “Back on Track” Celebration. The exhibit, in the newly restored Santa Fe Depot at 200 S. Jones, continues through August 27.

“There are so many subjects from which to choose” Dr. Cobb says. “This is true every day when I arrive at the studio. My aim, as an artist, and for this show at The Depot, is to select a variety of themes to make it interesting and to try to convince the viewer (as well as myself) that I am reasonably capable of painting all of them.”
