Council for the Arts in Jacksonville, NC, Features Works by Clara Johnson

In honor of Black History Month the Council for the Arts in Jacksonville, NC, will feature the artwork of Clara Johnson, with the exhibit, Liquid Dreams, on view in the Bradford Baysden Gallery, from Feb. 5 - 24, 2012. Meet this fascinating artist at the reception on Feb. 5, from 2:30-4pm. The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Jacksonville (NC) Alumnae Chapter will host the event.

The ethereal paintings of self-trained artist, Clara K. Johnson, mirror her view of the world and her personality. Johnson is the grand-daughter of the late Benjamin R. Harrison (creator of “The Golden Bull”, mascot for Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, NC). Johnson’s art reflects the interconnectedness of the color, form and movement found all around us.

“My style of painting is best described as Biomorphic Abstract. My creative goal is to express how life moves in, out, through, between, around us.”

Johnson resides in Raleigh, NC. In addition to her art she enjoys traveling, reading and helping worthy causes.

The Council For The Arts, founded in 1976, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to represent and support excellence in the Arts in Onslow County; to encourage and promote the development of the Arts in the Schools and in the community.
