Native son sees his artwork hung in SoHo

Copeland has returned home to Freeport to live and has an album release planned for April 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Seaside Rep Meeting Hall.

"I realized this is where I need to be," he says simply.

Before returning to Freeport, he visited long-time friend Anne Hunter in SoHo. She asked to represent his work in her area and was able to get eight pieces of his artwork accepted at Treasure & Bond. His artwork can be viewed on the store's website.

"In the 1970s, SoHo was an art colony," said Hunter. "There are few galleries left here now, but Nordstrom has brought in this store and wants to be part of the community."

"This has all happened very quickly and feels great," said Copeland. "It's magical. I didn't see it coming so quickly and am really excited."

Copeland is currently working on seven new paintings. Hear him perform at Summer Kitchen at Rosemary Beach on Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Locally, Allison Wickey Gallery in Seacrest behind La Cocina carries his work.
