Stacie Johnson

August 11, 2016 - October 15, 2016

Opening Reception & Artist Talk: Thursday, August 11th, 5-7pm My paintings are abstractions that explore the visual effect of tensions between painting and sculpture.

Opening Reception & Discussion: Thursday, December 15, 2016, 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm.
