Art Exhibit Opening: “Painting Forward: Past to Present” w/ Tina Johnston

April 16, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for the exhibition opening of “Painted Forward: Past to Present” at the Mabee Farm Historic Site! Artist Tina Johnston will discuss the nature of her artwork and the catalyst for this body of work. Light refreshments provided.

“Painted Forward” presents paintings from the 1860s to 1920s repurposed in silk and reimagined with the figures holding digital devices. The luminosity and soft texture of silk, along with the gentle lines and melting colors provides visual serenity and adds new meaning to these historic images.

Local artist Tina Johnston is mesmerized by the radiance of silk; the capricious movement of liquid dyes is infectious. Johnston lives and paints in the Capital District of NY and is a member of the Schenectady Art Society.
