June Artist of the Month – GEORGIA JOHNSON
Exhibit Opening Reception Friday June 7th 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Powell Museum – 6 N. Lake Powell Blvd.
Georgia Johnson is a self-taught artist. Her works have been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the Southwest, including the John Wesley Powell Museum located on the shores of beautiful Lake Powell in Page, Arizona. Georgia has also participated in a number of public art events along with many noted artists. Originally from Fullerton, California, and now retired, Georgia makes her home in both St. George, Utah, and Greenehaven, Arizona enjoying, as she says, the ‘best of both worlds’.
For thirty some years, Georgia worked as a hair stylist and salon owner. Now, surrounded by the natural beauty and splendor of the Colorado Plateau and Southern Utah, she has time to pursue her passion for painting. As an artist, Georgia creates art works for private collections as well as commercial enterprises. She enjoys painting creative, non-traditional portraiture in a variety of styles ranging from whimsical to classic. It is her belief that a good artist needs to be well-rounded.
Georgia and her husband, Rick, love to explore the back roads of the Southwest. Hiking, camping and boating provide inspiration for the magnificent colors that Georgia puts on canvas. As an active member of the Lake Powell Art Association, as well as the Visual Arts Association of St. George, Utah, Georgia donates her talent and free time to improve the work of others, both new and seasoned.
Join us Friday June 7th from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the Powell Museum for an exhibit opening reception. The event is FREE to the public, and refreshments will be served!
