Courttney Cooper is one of Cincinnati’s most incredible contemporary artists. Working in the supportive atmosphere at Visionaries and Voices, he has become well-known for his intricate bird’s eye views of downtown Cincinnati and its environs, created primarily using ballpoint pens.
We first came across Courttney and his work soon after moving to Cincinnati, at an outsider art fair on Court St. downtown. The creative energy at the event, which included several V&V artists, was contagious and inspiring. Since then, we’ve attended many exhibits by V&V artists, and we’re really excited about this Friday’s opening of Cincinnati USA: Before Meets After, a solo exhibit of Cooper’s work at the PAC Gallery in East Walnut Hills.
Cincinnati USA: Before Meets After is at the PAC Gallery through 21 May 11.
