Rochelle Johnson and Evita Tezeno at Framed
ROCHELLE JOHNSON: DEPICTIONS
Reception 6:00 to 9:00pm Friday, December 6
Rochelle Johnson will exhibit Depictions at Framed, opening December 6. Her paintings largely reflect what she sees in her community on a positive level. She feels that too much negativity gets out into the world. Rochelle’s focus is on portraits placed in an environment where people are doing what comes naturally to them. She captures the energy and emotion of her subject matter. Rochelle believes if she paints an interaction of unusual encounters, people will become familiar with those interactions and possibly change the norm—much like the lone black figure in classical painting that people tend to overlook. Rochelle’s paintings focus on a narrative that is interactive in a way that showcases the sitter and creates curiosity.
EVITA TEZENO: WHIMSY
Reception 6:00 to 9:00pm Thursday, March 5
Internationally known artist Evita Tezeno will open Whimsy at Framed Gallery with a reception from 6:00 to 9:00pm on Thursday, March 5. Tezeno’s work consists of collages with cubist influences. Her bold use of color, texture and shape are the core of her collages. Inspired by the images that she sees in her sleep, Evita translates these visions through mixed media, combining handmade paper, acrylic paint and found objects. Pulling from experiences and children’s stories, she creates whimsical images that provoke laughter and thought to help enrich the soul. Evita has been rated one of the top twenty black artists to collect today.
