may 19 - jul 30 | emily cooper

Emily Cooper is Pacific Theatre's official New Favourite Person - you'll see her artwork for our next season when we unveil the new brochure at the opening of THE GREAT DIVORCE May 20, and her publicity shots for that show are pretty much my favourites ever. Well, the night before we open, Emily opens her own gallery show on Main Street: here's the poster.

Emily Cooper’s new body of work was photographed in Mexico, South East Asia, and Cuba over a period of four months. Collecting old books and discovering beautiful pieces of paper, Emily turns these lost and discarded objects into self-portraits.

Join us for the opening reception, meet the artist and enjoy a glass of wine.

I'll also add the one for her simultaneous show in Seattle - just so you can get a look at more of her work.
