OUR HISTORY, OUR VOICES PROJECT

The Shannon Deana Johnson Exhibit

About Her Exhibit…

I am a Knoxville, TN-based mixed media painter.

My process is intuitive.

I work to create a balance between harmony and contrast, simplicity and accumulation, and stillness and motion.

As the painting progresses, I often add more concrete elements such as botanical or figurative shapes.

In this latest series called, “Story of a Girl,” I have been exploring the use of imagery connected to the idea of femininity and aspects of it that are meaningful to me.

More Exhibits

The Cheryl Prose Exhibit

The MeToo Art Project launched October 2017 and is designed to (1) give survivors of sexual violence another vehicle by which to speak their truth about their experience, (2) be a means by which to hold perpetrators accountable, (3) raise awareness of the epidemic of sexual harassment and assault, and (4) be a means by which solidarity is shown- without regard to gender- with and to those who have experienced this type of life-altering attack.

The Emily McClenagan Exhibit

Jane & Pearl started during my twins' nap in 2015 as a way for me to create as well as give back to others. I am partnering with Thrive Parkridge in East Knoxville to amplify their work and donate profits to help with projects such as renovating rooms and spaces in their 100-year-old building. I love to paint live at weddings, watercolor home portraits, and of course whimsical florals.
