Press Release
Tuesday, May 08, 2018

The CollectiveHOUSTON (May 8, 2018)—“Seamingly Natural,” featuring new works from Ann Johnson and her mother Thelma Johnson, opens Friday, May 11, at the Community Artists’ Collective with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m.  The exhibit continues through June 2. 

Primarily self-taught, Thelma Johnson, who has always had an infinity for sketching, became more interested in painting in 2005 while taking painting classes at the Roy Culler Senior Center in High Point, N.C.  Several of her art works have placed in local art competitions. She had her first solo exhibition at the International Center for Civil Rights and Museum in Greensboro, N.C., in 2017.   

Ann Johnson is a multidisciplinary artist whose works push the boundaries of experimental printmaking and examine issues of race, gender and identity.  She has exhibited nationally and teaches at Prairie View A&M University. 

The May 11 reception is free to the public.  On Thursday, May 17, a Momentum Reception, designed especially for the next generation of art collectors, will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m.  Guests will be treated to light bites catered by Lemond Kitchen, wine and music by DJ Andre Sam Sin as well as to the exhibit. Admission is $25 presale and $30 at the door. 

The Collective is open during the exhibition Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12 noon until 5 p.m. and by appointment.
