ROCHELLE JOHNSON

INAUGURAL REDLINE ART + TAB PARTNERSHIP EXHIBITION

February 7 – March 3, 2023

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, February 10 from 5PM to 7PM

 

The Art Base is pleased to present the first inaugural RedLine pARTnership. Rochelle Johnson, Denver-based painter and former RedLine artist in residence, will be exhibiting works for a solo exhibition in the Alpenglow Exhibition Space. Through a combination of her Urban Life Series and pieces from Blue World, Johnson aims to give a panoramic view of her work since she decided to become a full-time painter in 2009.

 

Rochelle Johnson was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, where she discovered her passion for drawing at an early age. As a child she discovered the work of Lois Mailou Jones and Jacob Lawrence and was further inspired by the Denver Black Arts Festival in the 1980s. The experience of meeting the artists and seeing their work ignited her passion for the Arts. In 1989, Johnson enrolled at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design where she learned to create stories using oils and watercolors. She attained a degree in Illustration.

 

In 1992, she moved to Seattle, Washington where she worked as a freelance designer, creating community theater posters and identity packages for local businesses. These opportunities paid the bills, but she became intrigued by the idea of being a story-teller through her work. In 1997, she entered the annual Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle Minority Art Exhibition where she sold her first non-commercial piece.

 

In 1999, Johnson returned to Denver and eventually resumed pursuing the idea of story-telling through painting, a calling that had never left her consciousness. In 2005, her artwork was featured on the cover of the novel When a Sistah’s Fed Up, previously on Essence’s Top Ten List. Rochelle has been published in several journals. Today, Johnson continues to develop her unique style of story-telling through painting from her Denver studio and has also added to her accomplishment as curator. In 2017 she curated Inclusion: Diverse Voices of the Modern West at the McNichols Civic Center Building in Denver, Colorado and in December 2018 The Search Within: Daughters of the Diaspora at the Western Colorado Center of the Art in Grand Junction, Colorado.

THE ART BASE GALLERY SPACE

The Art Base exhibition program focuses on opportunities for solo, group, and guest-curated exhibitions for Colorado-based artists, with an emphasis on those living in the Roaring Fork Valley. Artists selected by our Exhibitions Committee can be at any stage of their careers. We strive to achieve diversity in topics and media, and we give preference to proposals of recent or new work that has not been previously exhibited in the Valley.
