January 2024 in the Galleries with Bill Johnson

Artists & Makers Studios in Rockville Features
Bill Johnson and “Friends and Landscapes of the Mind”

(Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn Drive in Rockville is delighted to host Bill Johnson for the month of January. The exhibit, “Friends and Landscapes of the Mind” runs from January 3rd through January 24th at Artists & Makers Studios, with an opening reception on Friday, January 5th, 5 – 8pm. The show features many new nonobjective mixed media paintings and some of his older work. Each painting exhibits the mysterious quality of perceived intentional figures where no intention can be pinpointed. One admirer likened this to the psychological phenomenon in which people see faces and patterns in a random stimulus. The show invites the viewer to slow the eye, open the mind, and come play in the created landscape. Another admirer described Johnson’s work as “a mystery that blurs the lines between intentional genius and happy accident.” Johnson is adept at the “first I’m hidden, and then I’m found” technique. At first glance, the average person will see only lots of color and motion; but, with a little imagination and a relaxed eye the hidden landscapes and characters emerge. Enjoy additional exhibits “White” with Resident Artists – on view in the Gallery Hall, along with nineteen Gallery 209 Member Artists exhibiting their latest work. Shop and support working artists, makers, and professionals.
