George Johanson: Why Make Art?

February 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm PST

Free
Man with green sweater, blue apron and visor, wire glasses and a white goatee is seated before two versions of the same painting — one, larger, hangs on a concrete wall; another smaller version sits atop an easel. The painting has a vertical grid on the left with images of a horse, a buggy, a train, an old plane and a steamboat stacked atop each other. A bird's-eye view of a shoreline stretches vertically across the entirety of the right side of the painting. In the middle, men paint a green arrow on the ground pointing toward a landscape scene in the distance, painted using vidi reds, dark blues and shades of grey and black. A man in a trench coat stands in the foreground.

At age 92, Portland-based artist George Johanson has been drawing and painting for over 80 years. In this slide lecture and studio visit on Zoom Webinar, he will talk about where art has taken him and why he feels the need to keep making it. Q&A to follow.

Made possible by the David John and Anne Kutka McCosh Memorial Museum Endowment Fund.
