There’s a Rainbow in the Road : Caroline Johnson
March 23, 2013 @ 9:00 am - July 7, 2013 @ 5:00 pm
Saturday 23 March 2013 to Sunday 7 July 2013, Salford Museum and Art Gallery
This is Caroline’s first solo show in a public gallery. Her highly graphic, graceful paintings and drawings reflect both the vibrancy of recent changes, and the history of Salford and Manchester. Caroline’s contemporary urban artworks investigate the hidden charm of overlooked corners, as well as giving a fresh interpretation to architectural icons.
Caroline lives in Leyland where she was brought up on a post-war housing estate and drew from an early age. She attended art schools in Preston and Falmouth and the Central College of Art and Design, London.
Caroline is the official Urban Sketcher for Manchester and carries her sketchbook with her at all times. She’ll be making sketches in the area in the months leading up to the exhibition and these will be on show alongside her larger works.
There’ll be workshops with the artist, too, and opportunities to meet her informally in the gallery
