Coughlin to sign books Dec. 8 in Easthampton
Professor emeritus of Art Jack Coughlin will sign his books at White Square - Fine Books & Art in Easthampton on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 5-7 p.m.
Limited edition signed prints from Coughlin's extensive portrait collection of literary figures and musicians will also be for sale.
"A Brush with the Blues: 26 Portraits," a visual and verbal tribute to famous blues artists, grew from a collaboration between Coughlin and Steve Tracy, professor of Afro-American Studies. The book is a collection of portraits of blues musicians, with accompanying text by Tracy.
Coughlin's prints, drawings and watercolors have been exhibited widely across the United States and Europe and are in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Modern Art.
