Archabbey gallery exhibit features landscapesFebruary 21, 2013
From local sources
ST. MEINRAD — Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery will host an exhibit of landscape paintings in oil and mixed media prints by Philadelphia artist Clay Johnson beginning Saturday. The exhibit closes March 28.
Johnson paints on-site, beginning his work with careful observation of his surroundings. Free play of the imagination, rather than objective reporting, is his aim. Color and light are central.
“I look until I see something that moves me and then I construct a painting around that experience,” he said.
After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Northern Illinois University in 1975, Johnson studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Settled in the Manayunk area of Philadelphia, he continues to paint and is most known for his large paintings of Valley Forge and the Schuylkill River.
His work is found in public and private collections, including those of Blue Cross and Blue Shield, AIG Insurance Co. and Provident National Bank.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Those wishing to view the exhibit are advised to arrive at least 30 minutes before closing time.
For library hours, call 8357-6401, 800-987-7311 or visit the library’s website at www.saint meinrad.edu/library/hours/
