A.I.R, the first and foremost women’s collective gallery in the United States represents artists from across the country.

A number of these works were first seen in the recent A.I.R. exhibition curated by Rocio Aranda-Alvarado, “In the Secret Garden”.
Participating artists are Janet Decker Yanez, d’Ann de Simone, Jenn Dierdorf, Elise Dodeles, Jacqueline Ferrante, Shannon Forrester, Melissa Furness, Maxine Henryson, Carrie Johnson, Jody Joldersma, Cynthia Karasek, Julia Kim Smith, Jayanthi Moorthy, Nancy Morrow, Catherine Mosley, Ann Schaumburger, Patty Smith, Susan Stainman, Erica Stoller, Amy Swartele, Jane Swavely, Erin Wiersma, and Joo Yeon Woo.
Anita Rogers Gallery presents a group exhibition featuring works by Carrie Johnson, Gordon Moore and Kazimira Rachfal. Collectively, the show serves as an exploration of line, of balance and of the stylistic and psychological complexity of seemingly simple spatial forms. The show is on view from July 26 through September 6, 2016 at 77 Mercer Street, Suite 2N in New York City. Untitled, the artist’s large oil on canvas piece in this show, is an interconnected mix of elegant, organic lines in muted tones with pops of color. The layered piece is ripe with detail and texture.
On the work, Johnson states:
This painting is part of a series which evolved from works on paper shown at the Drawing Center in 2001. Open natural form structures in a state of reconfiguring layered in an atmospheric background aim to evoke a feeling of confronting what was left behind and what remains.
