Bradley Cochran, AKA Rolling Nowhere, is a self taught artist and songwriter born in Rome. A self-proclaimed late bloomer, he started writing and performing music at age 30 and began painting in 2016 at the age of 40. While working dude ranches in Wyoming in his twenties, Brad fell in love with Western Landscapes and culture. His subjects include Cowboys, Western landscapes, skulls, while also paying homage to his love of American roots music.
“I painted myself out of a dark period in my life and found my passion inside a world of bright colors. I’m basically putting everything I love into a blender, adding color and moving forward to an unknown destination with my art,” he said.
The exhibit runs through July 9, and will feature ticketed performances by several artists at various dates, with Cochran (Rolling Nowhere) performing on Saturday and Robinella performing July 2.
