Tara Cooper’s art practice embraces an everything-but-the-kitchen sink approach, combining media from print, documentary filmmaking, sculpture and book arts. Her subject matter draws from meteorology and creative non-fiction, resulting in projects housed under the moniker Weather Girl. Recent accomplishments include residencies at Anderson Ranch Art Center (Snowmass, Colorado), The Wassaic Project (Wassiac, New York) and Landfall Trust (Brigus, Newfoundland), as well as arts council grants from Ontario and Canada. She is also co-editor of Printopolis (along with Jenn Law), a volume examining contemporary print in Canada published by Toronto’s Open Studio and co-director of the documentary Follow the Bones (along with Terry O'Neill), a film that tells the story of Northern Alberta’s Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum. She teaches printmaking and time-based media.
