Harry Cohen passed away in September 2019. He was loved by a great number of people, and was also a great artist.
Ktaharina Powers, owner of the Art Ventures Gallery in Menlo Park, CA, said she is honored to present Harry Cohen’s Retrospective December 13, 2019 through January 30, 2020. Retrospective is going to be curated by Michael Killen, Harry’s close friend. Harry and Michael worked on many paintings together.
Harry Cohen’s art was on display at NASA AMES and Stanford University.
Paula Kirkeby, Smith-Andersen Editions and Gallery, said, “Early on Harry’s work had the feel of a de Kooning. His work evolved into a spirited and emotional life of its own. He made great art for art collectors.”
Terry L. Root, Senior Fellow Emerita, Stanford University, wrote:
“When my late husband, Steve Schneider, died unexpectedly, I was left with memories and photographs to remind me of events in our lives. But thankfully Harry did several paintings of Steve. Harry was a brilliant painter because not only did he capture the likeness of Steve, but he also captured quirks of his personality. These paintings I treasure because they are vivid reminders to me of Steve’s wonderful personality. Every day I thank Harry for his paintings, while at the same time embracing wonderful memories of Steve. The world has lost a very talented painter with the passing of Harry.”
Throughout long years of friendship and collaboration Michael Killen produced several TV Show Episodes with Harry Cohen, and recent one, involving Art Professor and Harry’s friend Fredric Holle, to commemorate Harry’s work and life.
“Harry Cohen, Retrospective”, curated by Michael Killen, will be hosted by Art Ventures Gallery, 888 Santa Cruz Ave, Menlo Park, CA 94025 December 13, 2019 – January 30, 2020
