Melanie Johnson: The Spaces Between
Exhibition at The Gallery at Penn College

Categorized as: Art & Galleries
Event tags: Painting, Artist, Drawing, Art Exhibition

Description:

Melanie Johnson makes large-scale figurative drawings and paintings, working from observation and composite sources. Narrative is employed loosely in her work and she draws primarily on what is familiar as a catalyst for making. She wants the physical drawing or painting to encapsulate imagery representative of a lived moment as well as the history of its own manifestation. Johnson received her MFA in Painting from Indiana University and is an Associate Professor of Art & Design at the University of Central Missouri.

Meet the Artist Reception: Thursday, November 16, 2017, 4:30 - 6:30 p.m., gallery talk at 5:30 p.m.

Closed November 22 - 26
