WONDERLAND: Sarah Anne Johnson 2002-2014

Triangle, 2011, Chromogenic print, embossed and screen printed, Edition of 4

The work of Sarah Anne Johnson (b.1976 Winnipeg, Canada) playfully, but pointedly bridges dualities between the real and imagined; factual and fictive; lived and desired. She works from an unapologetically personal perspective that reflects her growing concerns for the world, combined with the pursuit of a utopian place that re-mains tantalizingly out of reach. At every step Johnson attempts to nudge reality closer to her ideals, supplementing quixotic photographs with humble dioramas, sculpey figurines, painterly interludes, handcrafted doll-houses and all manner of modifications performed upon the photo itself. This survey exhibition brings together her five major bodies of work to date, along with two large-scale installations set in furtive, shimmering forest. As a whole, Wonderland presents the first opportunity to trace the continuity and inspiring evolution of this young artist's practice.

Urban Sketching Group

Painting by Scott Renk

The CAM Raleigh Urban Sketching Group is a monthly group intended for all skill levels interested in exercising, exploring or expanding their drawing skills. The Urban Drawing Group meets inside of CAM Raleigh and then enters the urban settings surrounding the museum in the Warehouse District, and sometimes further into downtown Raleigh. Pausing at inspiring vistas, ignored buildings, curious landscapes, or forgotten details, the goal of the Urban Drawing group is to take time to study our surroundings and exercise our dormant drawing skills. All media that can pack into a pocket, backpack, or purse are encouraged and participants please bring your own supplies. Participants please check-in at the CAM Raleigh front desk upon arrival.

*The group will depart CAM Raleigh shortly after 2:00 p.m., please arrive early so you have time to check in.

Participants must be 18+.

Start: April 11, 2015 2:00 pm
End: April 11, 2015 4:00 pm
