February First Friday, featuring “TRANSITION: new work by Jeremiah Johnson” opening reception
Join us as we celebrate our local Arts & Small Businesses on February 6th from 6pm–9pm.
“TRANSITION: new work by Jeremiah Johnson” is an ambitious exhibition of large paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture and installation work that describe Johnson’s latest visions from the past, present, and future. The works begin as a continuation of thoughts and ideas centered on personal history and identity but transitions into a realm of spirituality and psychedelic mysticism.
The exhibition itself will change throughout it’s duration.
Johnson was raised on a fruit and flower farm in Nippenose Valley. He received his BFA from Tyler School of Art of Temple University, before going on to get his MFA in print, paper and book arts from Syracuse University. Johnson’s work is included in several collections both regionally and internationally including the State Museum of Pennsylvania, the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Virginia, and the Servais Collection in Brussels, Belgium. Johnson teaches drawing and printmaking at Lycoming College and works full time in his studio making art about culture, folklore, and survival.
