Wynne Greenwood is a queer feminist artist who incorporates video, performance, music, and object-making to practice, in the artist’s words “culture-healing.” Greenwood’s performances, installations, and object-based works have been included in exhibitions at independent and institutional spaces across the globe including: the Tate Modern, London; the 2004 Whitney Biennial, NYC; The Kitchen, NYC; the Frye Art Museum, Seattle; Susanne Vielmetter, Los Angeles; Soloway, Brooklyn; Henry Art Gallery, Seattle; and Lawrimore Project, Seattle. From 1999–2006, Greenwood performed the celebrated multimedia art band Tracy + the Plastics. Since 2006, Greenwood has shifted her focus to installation and object-based work. Recently, Greenwood participated in Anti-Establishment, a group exhibition at Bard College's Center for Curatorial Studies, and released the full-length music album A Fire To Keep You Warm. Greenwood teaches performance and video at Seattle University.

The mission of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery is to enhance the academic offerings of Reed College with a diverse range of scholarly exhibitions, lectures, and colloquia in its role as a teaching gallery.
The gallery was established by a generous 1988 gift from Sue and Edward Cooley and John and Betty Gray "in support of the teaching of art history at Reed College, as part of an interdisciplinary educational experience that strengthens the art history component of Reed's distinctive humanities program." Exhibitions are coordinated in collaboration with Reed faculty members and courses, with attention to the needs and interests of the larger Portland and Northwest arts communities. A schedule of three to four exhibitions during the academic year brings to Reed and the Portland community work that would not otherwise be seen in the region.
