Charlotte Jackson Fine Art presents a solo exhibition of new work, Ron Cooper: Cars & Bars, July 30 – September 4, 2021, with a reception for the artist on Friday, July 30 from 5 – 7 p.m. The gallery is located in the Railyard Arts District at 554 South Guadalupe Street. Ron Cooper: Cars & Bars is Cooper’s first solo exhibition in his home-state of New Mexico since 2015.

As an early member of the 1960’s California Light and Space Movement, Cooper has long focused on using contemporary materials such as plexiglass, resin, and lacquer to capture and manipulate the perceptual phenomenon of light. His square Light Traps and slender column-like Vertical Bars represent his first experiments with these then-new materials. While these works were pioneering investigations from his early career alongside other Southern California artists of the time, Cooper has never stopped working with cutting-edge materials. The Corona Bars, on view in Ron Cooper: Cars & Bars, are just his latest exploration.
