EVANSVILLE

Fort Branch native Drew Cooper will be bringing his signatures “Wildflower” to Evansville starting Friday.

“A Breath of Fresh Air” featuring Cooper’s art will be in the Bower Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery and in the Arts Council’s virtual gallery beginning Jan. 15.

The Arts Council announced the exhibit is free and open to everyone, but for the health and safety of the community, no more than 20 people are allowed in the gallery at one time. Masks are required

The exhibit will also be available to view and to purchase online at artswin.org.

The Arts Council will be open 6-8 p.m. From Jan. 19 to Feb. 12, the hours will be 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday.

Cooper’s work can be seen around south Gibson County in multiple places, including the Fort Branch park, R’Z Cafe and in Owensville.

The Owensville piece was his most recent work completed locally. The Owensville Merchants Association commissioned a mural on the south wall of a building owned by Scott Garrett on the east side of the town square. It includes a nod to the school mascot, the annual Watermelon Festival and other features of the community.

Cooper has also worked with multiple brands to complete projects, including Coach NY, Mountain Dew, Boost Mobile, Adidas, Puma, Vans, WeTransfer, and Dew Tour.
