Exhibition | Ashley Norwood Cooper

Jul 17, 2024 — Sep 8, 2024

Born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina, Ashley Norwood Cooper (born 1970) received her BA from the University of Georgia, where she majored in Latin. She taught Latin for a time, before moving to Bloomington, Indiana, where she earned her MFA in Painting from Indiana University in 2000.

Cooper's work depicts intimate, middle-class life in vibrant colors applied with bold, expressive brushstrokes. Optimistic and hopeful, her scenes of seeming domestic tranquility also hint at the unpredictability and fragility of family life and community. Informed by Abstract Expressionism, her large-scale figurative paintings have been the subjects of numerous solo and group exhibitions in the United States.
