Gallery Masters
Warren MacKenzie, Karen Karnes and Jan McKeachie Johnston

January 10 - February 7, 2015



Updated 9/23/13

The work of Jan McKeachie-Johnston, a ceramic artist of more than 20 years, grows out of a strong tradition of functional ceramics from England and Japan (Bernard Leach/Shoji Hamada). It has also been informed and inspired by the ancient Minoan pottery of Crete, Jomon pottery of Japan, American Indian and Japanese basket forms, Iranian pottery and African pottery and masks. The sense of form, rich surface patterns and textures of these artistic influences reflect and offer a connection between humanity and art that McKeachie- Johnston has captured in her own work.
