MARCH FEATURED ARTIST
LAYNE JOHNSON | “CHASING THE LIGHT” SOLO SHOW
March brings landscape artist Layne Johnson to the gallery with his solo show and demonstration. Dutch Art Gallery will host a Meet the Artist reception during our March First Thursday Event as well as a demonstration by the artist that Saturday. You can get to know Layne a little better by reading our Artist Spotlight article, but be sure to come by the gallery to meet him and see his work in person, including new pieces. Solo Show on view through March 31st.
A very focused and driven artist, Layne set his sights on making art his career early in life and squarely hit the bullseye. You’ll find him painting on nearly a daily basis though he does “try to take weekends off”. Inspired by the painters of the Hudson River School, Layne’s work is described as a blend of Luminism, Classical Realism with the added touch of American Impressionism. Having transitioned from an earlier hyper-realistic style, his looser painting technique is still quite detailed and depicts light in the landscape skillfully. His primary goal is to capture the beauty and serenity of a particular location to create a “sense of place” and an emotional connection to it. He wants the viewer to be reminded to slow down, take a breath and appreciate the beauty that’s right in front of them.
