After 11 weeks that the Arts Center has opened it’s doors again. Please check HERE for the new hours and procedures for visiting. However, we have this incredible 45th Juried Show to share that we would like to continue to feature online. Each day (see menu to the left) in the morning hours we will post a new work on display in the galleries with a short story.
Hi! I’m Michael Johnson and I’m interested in painting. I’m mostly working on painting the human face or figure, like in this piece “Janis,”— it’s an endlessly evocative subject, endlessly meaningful. My favorite feature of the Athens area is actually the compassionate attitude and spirit that’s nourished by the entire community. It may be hard to define, as the Athens area is so diverse, but there’s an esprit de corps here that makes this area such a magnet for artists of all kinds.
