Somerhill Gallery in Chapel Hill, NC, Features Works by Robert Johnson
Somerhill Gallery in Chapel Hill, NC, announces a feature exhibit for one of North Carolina's leading artists. New narrative paintings by Robert Johnson will be Somerhill's final feature of the year before the gallery's annual Holiday opening. The exhibit will be on view through Nov. 23, 2002.
Drawing largely on his strong interest in nature conservation and his travels throughout the wild areas of North Carolina, the US, and the world, Johnson creates narrative paintings that record his observations of the natural environment. Complex, detailed studies of areas he has visited, always populated with exquisitely painted studies of native wildlife and plantlife, Johnson's paintings convey to the viewer the vigor, beauty, and abundance of nature.
Johnson is one of NC's premier artists, having recently been awarded a major permanent commission by the RDU Airport Authority. He has exhibited widely throughout the southeast, including exhibits at the the North Carolina Museum of Art and the Asheville Museum of Art. He is a past recipient of a NC Arts Council Project Grant and a 3 month residency fellowship to the Headlands Center for the Arts, in San Francisco, CA. Most recently Johnson was awarded an NC Arts Council Fellowship Grant to study traditional painting in India, Jaipur, Katmandu, Nepal, and Bali. Evidence of Johnson's exploration and development in these exotic locales will be evident in his most recent body of work.
Somerhill Gallery is proud to have represented Johnson for many years.
