Please join us for an exhibition of work by Kansas City native Hannah Johnston. Hannah graduated from the Kansas City Art Intitute in 2013 with a BFA in Fiber and a focus in Asian Studies and Community Arts and Service Learning.

Hannah Johnston's work explores the slender gap between the perceived and the unreal through landmarks. She uses patterning and drawing, among other methods of mark making, to create another dimensional surface within an image. In "Peripheral Landscapes" Johnston seeks to create a curious imbalance of positive and negative space that leaves the viewer questioning which is the landmark and which is the shadow.
