Depleted



Amy Johnson has created the first site-specific installation at the KJM Center for the Arts at South Puget Sound Community College. The title of the show is Depleted and it opens up Friday, February 6. “Amy Johnson uses installation art to explore the tension between the myths and realities embedded in her Southern heritage and the cultural expectations for women.”

Jeffry Mitchell had this to say about the show in the February issue of City Arts - Tacoma, "Amy Johnson achieves her most focused work to date in a compelling exhibition comprising cryptic sculpture and storybook collages. Johnson combines salt, found antlers, an antique bath tub, paper, gold leaf and ink in surprising ways to transpose classic fairy tale themes into a darkly beautiful and mysteriously open-ended installation. Materials matter here."

The show is up through February 28 so check it out!
