Photography Alumna Included in ‘Dreamers’ Exhibit at Arta Gallery

Photography Alumna Emily Cooper is showing her work as part of an exhibit entitled ‘Dreamers” ‘Dreamers’ encompasses a collection of artworks tailored to the styles of both the twentieth-century art movement Surrealism, as well as dream like Figurative paintings.

The exhibit runs from March 18th to March 30th at Arta Gallery, 14 Distillery Lane, M5A 3C4, Distillery District.
