The current exhibitions by Winfred Hawkins and Leanna Lesley will only be up for viewing through THIS SATURDAY, February 22! You do NOT want to miss out on seeing the unique talents these two artists have to show.
Ladies, drop in for a moment and join us the day before Valentine's Day for a Galentine's event in the main gallery! There will be champagne punch and chocolates, a photobooth to take some cute pictures, and you can enter to win a luncheon for you and three of your girlfriends one day at the Johnson Center!
February 13 from 2:30-5PM
Are you spending your Valentine's Day in Troy? Bring your sweetheart to visit your local arts center on Friday, February 14 before taking them out to a romantic dinner in town! Stroll around the art museum together, and you may just fall in love with the artwork and each other. We're conveniently located right off the square, so there are plenty of beautiful spots in and around the Johnson Center to take some cute photographs, too.
The perfect place to have your own
Arty Party is at Art by the Tracks with
Day Barnes! It is by far the most fun
way to celebrate a birthday.
Artist Leanna Leithauser Lesley, whose show "Shaken by the Roots" is featured in our lower galleries, is a fiber artist driven by the power of jazz music. She has been doing needlepoint from a very young age. Each piece of art that she does is based on a different image, so the buyer will always know they have an original. A lot of Leanna's inspiration comes from old jazz album art, and you can almost feel the music in the portraits.
