Rochelle Johnson: Depictions
Reception 6:00 to 9:00pm Friday, December 6
Depictions illustrates imagery that represents the everyday life of people from urban areas to the suburbs. Rochelle Johnson finds painting real life more interesting than still life, landscapes and non-representational work. “Every painting needs to have a figure in it.” Rochelle states that her work inadvertently takes on an abstract form even with the figure. Come meet Rochelle on December 6th, to learn more about the art and the artist.
