"Grace Beneath the Floating World" - Angela Davis Johnson Exhibit Opening Reception

Saturday, February 15, 2013

Biography
Little Rock based artist Angela Davis Johnson is best known for her vibrant narrative paintings that examines universal connections, southern identity and historical occurrences through personal symbols. Navigating between academic influences and outsider art individuality, she creates textured figures using oil paint, scrap paper and fabric within unique compositions. A signature member of Arkansas League of Artists, currently her work can be seen in galleries and private collections throughout the United States.

Artist Statement
“Grace beneath the Floating World.” I began this series with the thought what if Cranach’s three graces were born on 12th and Jefferson, a predominantly poor black neighborhood in Little Rock, AR. What would they look like? Would one be able to distinguish them from the crowd? This show is to examine our reaction to the invisibility, negative reputation, and ultimately humanity of this particular group.

Please join us for light refreshments at the exhibit's opening reception, Saturday, February 15 from 12pm - 3pm in Cabe Hall at the Regional Arts Center.

This event is generously sponsored by TRAHC's African American Committee and is apart of the TRAHC's African American Committee Exhibit Special Afternoon, 12pm-3pm Saturday, Febraury 15, 2014.
