Mississippi Scenes is an exhibit that includes nostalgic scenes of Mississippi by noted watercolorist Tom Cochran of Jackson, Miss. (1938-2006). Well-known landmarks such as Longwood, Chapel of the Cross and the Ruins of Windsor will surely stir past memories. Other scenes include everyday images of old sawmills and sharecroppers’ houses, along with paintings representing Tom’s favorite time of the year – Christmas.
