Fred Cousins was born Oct. 4, 1936, in Independence, Missouri. He relocated to Fort Smith with his mother, Thelma, at age 14. Both Fred’s mother and grandmother were painters. Freds Cousins’ love of nature is evident in almost all of his art.

The artist elaborates: “I love artwork that reflects the craftsmanship of the artist and works that show strong contrasts, colors, techniques, and surfaces. When creating a painting, or in simply observing art, I like abstract or coarse backgrounds that build to increasingly more accomplished planes of subject interest, focusing on finely detailed centers of interest.”

Unfortunately, Fred succumbed to COVID-19 in December of 2020.

Please come witness a retrospective of his art. Let it serve as a final gift to the Fort Smith community that he loved so dearly.
