Mark Yourself Safe by Ashley Johnson

Dates: October 11-November 8, 2019
Events: Opening October 11, 5-7pm

Ashley Johnson (Anj) is a photographer, mixed media artist, writer and creative entrepreneur living in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Johnson considers her work mixed media by way of her hand-crafted weavings throughout the work as well as and seasonal florals and other flora, woven or braided masks that often infuse her portraits. She recognizes that her work is only one voice in the large narrative of African American identity. Through personal study of popular culture, race-relations, Southern womanhood, femininity and the evolution of blackness, through the lens of self-explorations, she tells these stories from varying perspectives through time.

All McGrath events are free and open to the public. The gallery is located in Wyatt Hall on Bellarmine Boulevard off Norris Place, near the intersection of Norris Place and Princeton Drive.
