Works by impressionist painter Thomas Cogley are on display through November and December in the Klamath County Museum’s Modoc Gallery, 1451 Main St. in Klamath Falls.
An opening reception for the show will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18.
Cogley works primarily with oil “en plein aire,” or in the outdoors, reflecting landscapes, gardens, florals and still lifes.
Born in Carmel, Calif., to an artist father, Cogley has had a lifelong exposure to art. His parents opened Cogley Art Center in Klamath Falls in 1985. Thomas Cogley worked as manager of the framing department at the business, which also featured a gallery and sold art supplies.
After working for a year at the art center, Cogley became seriously interested in painting. He attended an oil workshop with John Cunningham at the Carmel Art Institute, just as his father, Lloyd Cogley, had earlier done in the 1950s.
Thomas Cogley worked with his father in mosaics, and studied with watercolor artist Katheryn Davis, and received instruction in oils from Keith Ward.
Cogley has shown works since 1994 in the Second Street Gallery in Bandon, Ore., and in John Neipp’s gallery in Ashland. He also operates his own gallery, Signature Framing, in Klamath Falls.
Admission to the Modoc Gallery is free during regular museum hours, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
