The Floating Dream 2015

The Floating Dream 2015

Tarleton State University’s Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center Gallery of Art proudly presents the first exhibition of the 2016-2017 season, A Singular Sense of Urgency by Hannah Cooper McCauley. The exhibit will be on view from Aug. 29th through Sept. 30th. She will be presenting at Tarleton on September 20th at noon in FA 101 Children’s Theater. 

A Singular Sense of Urgency is a series of photographs about growing up, filtered through experience and imagination. Hannah was inspired by her youth moving across the southern U.S. with her father who was a Baptist minister. As she has developed new roles in adulthood, she has continued to explore the theme of transition in her work,encapsulated within the genre of magical realism. The photographs in the exhibition are a personal investigation of loss, of the physical kind, as well as the kind of loss that occurs when transitioning to maturity.  

Hannah Cooper McCauley (b.1989, Tupelo, MS) received a BFA from Jacksonville State University in 2012 and her MFA from Louisiana Tech University in 2016. Cooper McCauley’s work has been exhibited in group and solo shows at various venues internationally, including the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the Vermont Center for Photography, Photo Beijing 2014, and the 2014 Pingyao, China International Photography Festival. Hannah has been published in Photo District News as well as Aint-Bad Magazine. Most recently, she was named a finalist in Photolucida’s Critical Mass Top 50 competition, as well as a winner in the 2015 Lensculture Emerging Talent Awards.  She is currently teaching photography and digital art at TMI-The Episcopal School of Texas in San Antonio.
