June 2024 Exhibition

Jim Johnson, Monochromatic Works


Jim on working in monochromatics: "As much as I love painting in color, sometimes I am compelled to work in just one color. It reduces everything to its simplest form without the distraction of color. Simple and honest."
Jim was educated at Kendall College of Art & Design, at The Art Institute Of Chicago and also served in the United States Navy. In 1971 he began a career as a commercial illustrator which spanned thirty years. His illustrations have won awards in many juried competitions including New York Art Directors Club, Art Directors Club Of Washington, Graphics Annual and Exhibit Print Annual Illustration Exhibit.


Since retirement in 2005 Jim has taken to painting on location in West Michigan and in Key West, Florida. His work was selected for the Michigan Water Color Society's 59th and 61st Annual Exhibits, the Muskegon 77th and 78th Regional Exhibits, Festival 2006-2008 Regional Exhibits and the 22nd annual West Michigan Regional Competition.
Jim teaches watercolor workshops and exhibits his work in West Michigan and Key West.


There will not be a reception for this exhibit.
