October 15, 2020
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join Pelham Art Center for a virtual studio visit with Ashley Cooper, exhibiting artist in Domestic Brutes.
Ashley Norwood Cooper’s idiosyncratic paintings are unabashedly narrative. In bright colors shedepicts American life with sincerity, nostalgia, and dark humor. She draws on a wide range of influences from art history and contemporary narrative painting to music and folklore. While her paintings sometimes seem magical and dreamlike, the details are always drawn from the humble reality of life, both domestic and natural, in the Appalachian mountains and foothills where the artist has mostly lived.
