Offsite Gallery opening reception "For My Brothers With Sons I Paint This" by local artist, Ray Johnson

Saturday, May 6, 2023

Join Norfolk Arts as we welcome local artist, Ray Johnson for his solo exhibition at our Offsite Gallery on the 2nd level of MacArthur Center, Suite 287. Ray Johnson states, “As an artist, I aspire to create art that is meaningful and emotional. My art engages representation of black beauty, strength and perseverance.” The work in this exhibition focuses on the positive impact of male figures on young men. “Aimed not only to praise fathers, the exhibition also is a special way to honor the man who believed in me more than I could ever believe in myself. I want young people to see that there are positive role models right here in the communities they live in,” says Johnson. The exhibition date falls close to Johnson’s heart, first, because of Father’s Day and second because June 17th is the day his father passed away.
