Walk in the Park
Art facilitates a culture’s understanding of its life and spirit. Jonelle Johnson’s installation at Occidental Park provides imagery that will allow pedestrians and other viewers to make emotional correlations between the imagery and the surrounding environment – providing an interaction between the art and the public.
Jonelle’s installation is part of the artSparks 2010 program. To learn more about what is going on in Occidental Park this summer, please visit the artSparks 2010 website.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Jonelle Johnson received a MFA in painting and printmaking from the University of Hawaii in 1977. She lived in Seattle before moving to Lopez Island in 2005 where she built a printmaking studio. Jonelle works in the etching and monotype/print mediums, using photopolymer film for some plates. Her preference for imagery is predominantly boats and birds, usually in a serial form in which harmony and contrast are major issues.
