Event Description

The Robert and Joan Kocher Retrospective Exhibition will be displayed at Coe College in both Sinclair Art Galleries from Sept. 6 to Oct. 4. An opening reception will be held Sept. 6 from 5 PM to 7 PM.  Exhibit open during gallery hours.

Former Coe College Marvin D. Cone Professor of Art Emeritus, Robert Kocher and his wife, Joan, have been vital members of the Cedar Rapids art community since 1959. Their artworks, spanning decades, reveal the creative collaboration between the two. 

This retrospective exhibition, including the trapunto technique, offers a unique glimpse at a lifetime of artistic creation and serves as a testament to the quality and diversity of their art.

After teaching painting, drawing and art history for over 30 years, Robert retired from active teaching and served as a curator of the Coe College art collection for approximately 10 years.
