Wilson Downtown Gallery: Kathleen Johnston

Kathleen Johnston WDG

"Creating a Sense of Order"

Artist statement: In these works, I explore creating a visual sense of order. Organizing can bring comfort and feelings of control and security. Colors, lines, and shapes are manipulated to establish sections or compartments, building depth in the process.

About the Artist: Kathleen Johnston is an artist living in Harrisonburg, Virginia. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art from James Madison University in 1997. She has been an art educator in Harrisonburg for many years but is currently concentrating on painting in her studio. Her work has been displayed locally in group exhibitions at the Wooden Trout Art Gallery, Bridgewater College and VMRC. She has had a two-person exhibition at the Joshua Wilton House and a solo exhibition at the Wine-Riner Gallery at Larkin Arts.
