Brian D. Cohen: WEDNESDAY at 8pm in the NONESUCH CAFÉ…

Artist in residence: Brian D. Cohen

We are delighted to have Brian D. Cohen as Nonesuch artist in residence during the month of September at Main & Station. Brian lives and works in southern New Hampshire and, while here, is spending most of his time out in the beautiful landscape with his watercolours.

Brian is an educator, artist, and writer. In 1989 he founded Bridge Press to further the association and integration of visual image, original text, and book structure.

As a printmaker, Cohen has shown in over forty individual exhibitions, including a retrospective at the Fresno Art Museum, and has participated in over 150 group shows. His books and etchings are held by major private and public collections throughout the United States, including Yale, Harvard, Brown, and Stanford Universities, Middlebury, Smith, Wellesley, Swarthmore, and Dartmouth Colleges, the University of Vermont, The New York Public Library, The Library of Congress, and the Philadelphia and Portland (Oregon) Museums of Art, as well as the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the United States Ambassador’s residence in Egypt. Cohen was the first-place winner of major international print competitions in San Diego, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, and was awarded the Best Book in Show at the Pyramid Atlantic Book Fair.

Cohen is also the illustrator of two popular natural science books, Reading the Forested Landscape and The Granite Landscape, and is a frequent contributor of artwork to literary reviews and other publications, including the Paris Review. A book of his work, Brian D. Cohen: Etchings & Books, was published in 2001. His writing on prints, books, and arts education have appeared in the Huffington Post, Art in Print, Parenthesis, Vermont Views, and other print and online journals and magazines.

You can find out more about Brian on his website,, and by attending his presentation in the Nonesuch Café at Main & Station on Wednesday, 20 September at 8pm.
