A Cooperstown resident has a solo art show opening next month in a West Coast art center.
Ashley Norwood Cooper's show "Picnic at Sunset," will open Thursday, March 4, at ZINC Contemporary, an art studio in Seattle.
A South Carolina native who also teaches at SUNY Oneonta, Cooper has been selling her work through ZINC for about three years now, but she said the solo show is a step up for her.
"So, to have my own show is a new thing," she continued. "I have been waiting a while, because it has been delayed two times or three times, now, I think."
The show is named for one of the oil paintings in Cooper's collection. "Picnic at Sunset" shows a mother expressing emotion as she chases her child and her family's picnic is invaded by insects, all while her partner zones out on music or social media, oblivious to the chaos around them.
