July 2016


Opening Reception
Friday, July 1st, 2016

Cynthia Cooper is a cheerful and energetic artist who lives and works in Connecticut. She grew up in rural Pennsylvania. She has been making art pretty much forever, including during the time that she directed both an award-winning advertising/graphic design studio and a successful e-commerce website selling antique textiles.

Her work is an exploration of “how things look from the inside,” which is always very unexpected from how they look from the outside. She is not what you would expect.
