Edith Borax-Morrison and Keith Johnson: 2 solo shows at Kehler Liddell Gallery, New Haven

Edith Borax -Morrison and Keith Johnson are featured in simultaneous solo exhibitions at Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven from April 19 - May 20, 2012.

Morrison's exhibit of abstract ink drawings is titled "Alternative Pathways." Her drawings range from geometric studies to sinuous organic forms which intertwine on paper.

Johnson's exhibit of photographs is "Recent Work." Johnson's use of the grid in his "Extended Landscapes" led to his current work. Some photographs are completely abstract, and others use familiar objects as elements that form patterns in the larger work. Water surfaces, the sky and airplanes are recurrent motifs.

Both exhibits open on Sunday, April 22, from 3:30 - 6:30 pm with live music by Notattoos from 5:00 - 6:30 pm. Morrison and Johnson will also be speaking about their work.

Kehler Liddell Gallery is located at 873 Whalley Avenue, New Haven, CT.

Our First Open House Day Was a Success

We had a great day on Saturday! New and familiar folks came through and looked at the exhibit "Photographs by Mark Savoia and Keith Johnson", shared some food and drink, and had their photos taken by Cathy Vanaria for her "Faces of Danbury"series.

The Danbury News-Times wrote a story on the show, which drew in some local folks we hadn't met before. We also had clients and friends from as far away as New Jersey. I'd like to thank everyone who stopped by for for helping make it a fun day.

Keith will also be featured in a group show focusing on architecture at Panopticon in Boston in September 10-Nov 10, 2009 with an opening reception Thursday, October 15, 5-7 pm.

The show includes photographs by Steve Rosenthal, John Woolf, Keith Johnson and Peter Vanderwarker. From the gallery's website: "Keith Johnson's new work isolates landscape elements, laying them out in grid and multiple linear formats. He suggests that the presentation of multiple images has a very structured and multilayered effect, creating a visual experience larger than the sum of the individual parts."
