Cassandra Cooper

Visual Artist

Recent Exhibition

Cassandra's thesis work focused on the devastating fires that swept through New Mexico in 2022. As part of her research, she traveled to Mora, New Mexico and spoke with numerous residents and documented the aftermath. The installation includes a watercolor triptych using charcoal from the burn area, an artist book, and salvaged objects. The exhibition was at the Center for Visual Arts in Denver, CO in April 2023. See details.



Cassandra grew up in the small, mountain town of Durango, Colorado and settled in Denver shortly after she graduated from Colorado College with a BA in Economics and a minor in East Asian Studies. She worked for a handful of years in international business education, but was drawn to the creative side of marketing. This interest led her to work as a graphic designer for more than twenty years.

In 2019, Cassandra returned to school and earned her BFA in Painting at Metropolitan State University in Denver at the end of last year. She and her husband plan to move to Taos, New Mexico later this year. View her CV.
