F. Eleanor Johnson – Passion + Purpose
A celebration of the life and work of F. Eleanor Johnson
July 1-31, 2011
Opening reception Friday July 8, 7-9:30 pm
A celebration of local artist and teacher F. Eleanor Johnson (1932-2009) who claimed that “To show others some of the beauty I see around me gives me great pleasure.” The collection of approximately 20 drawings and paintings from her water series, quilt series, and botanical works has been assembled by her daughter Lesley Fraser. They recall for us Eleanor’s vivid attention to beauty, fragility, expression and movement in nature, painting the flora and fauna of gardens and woodlands in the Hamilton area.
