Up for Bid is an Original Vintage "STATION AVE. BRIDGE, COOPERSBURG PA" OIL-ON-BOARD by Lehigh Valley Artist MARY KOCHER (Palmerton Pa, 1921- ) Signed Lower Right circa 1970!!!!
Mary Kocher Bio:
Kocher grew up in Morgantown, W.V. As a child, she was immersed in art, as it was an interest of her parents and siblings.
"I was home with the measles at 4 years of age," Kocher remembers of her first interest in art. "I looked out the window and sketched a distant landscape."
At 22, she began work as a bookkeeper at the University of West Virginia. She met and married a chemist working on the Manhattan project in Oak Ridge, Tenn. Her first child was born there in 1945, on the day one of the atomic bombs was dropped on Japan.
After the war, her husband joined the New Jersey Zinc Company as a chemist, and the family moved to Palmerton in 1946.
After a Palmerton woman introduced her to oil painting, Kocher signed up for art lessons at the Baum Art School in Allentown.
She honed her craft over six summers at a Rockport, Massachusetts art colony. "It's where all the famous artists gathered in the summertime," noted Kocher. "The light was glorious."
From her Palmerton home, and at Lehigh Valley Community College (LCCC now), Kocher taught oil painting.
Kocher's work is well known throughout the area and she is highly respected by fellow members of the art league that she helped found 45 years ago.
About 30 of her paintings are at the main branch of the Mauch Chunk Trust Company in Jim Thorpe.
Measures 24" x 30" in its original 29" x 35" frame and is in VERY GOOD/EXCELLENT Condition. Take a look at the pics!
