Art is Her: Nikki Johnson
Sept 1, 2021 – Nov 7, 2021
The Art is Her exhibition series celebrates women artists and champions their goal of achieving museum presence equal to men. TMA dedicates its atrium to a series of solo exhibitions by women artists and reminds visitors that equal representation has yet to be achieved in art today.
Creating art is a cathartic experience. I paint what I feel or what I observe others are feeling. My use of culturally diverse imagery, geometric shapes and bright bold colors helps me express myself in a way that is very different from my everyday life. The best part of the process is hearing others share the imagery the finished piece evokes in them. It brings about a unique connection with the viewer that I can continue to carry with me throughout my life.
