Charles Popo Cosby
1946-2008
A resident of Rockport for almost 50 years, Charles "PoPo" Cosby was a self-taught artist who loved to paint coastal and sporting art scenes. A staple of the downtown art scene for many years, Cosby could be found hard at work at PoPo's Art Studio on South Austin Street in Rockport. Known for his distinct watercolors and vintage lure collection, Cosby was a big supporter of community events, often donating his work for the causes of local charities and non-profit organizations.
