The gallery gives Carthage students and faculty the opportunity to engage with current regional and national art trends, and the conceptual ideas that they represent. Directed by artist and educator Ryan Peter Miller, the gallery also extends exposure to these works of art to the community.
With an exhibition space of more than 1,700 square feet, and exhibition catalogs with essays written by such prominent art critics as James Yood, Fred Camper, and Garret Holg, the H.F. Johnson Gallery of Art is one of Kenosha’s best-kept secrets.
The gallery provides generous exhibition opportunities for artists to share their work with a newly developed audience eager to experience how the world can be seen through viewpoints very different from their own. Through the H.F. Johnson Gallery of Art, students and members of the community find new meanings in places they may never have thought to look.
