AMHERST, NHDaryl D. Johnson will show oils on canvas at the Amherst Town Library, during the month of September. The Reception date is Sunday, September 15 from 2-4 p.m. All are welcome and the event is free to the public. Meet the artist while enjoying light refreshments.

The artworks represent vistas from travels around New England – grand vistas and personal vistas.

Described by Art New England magazine as “…gestural realist landscapes with the overall effect of speeding through layers of lighted space,” Johnson’s oil paintings of coastal scenes and skies resonate with pulsing waves of brushstrokes and rhythms of color. Johnson says of her work: “Shifting water patterns and rising transient clouds reflect nature’s energy in my oil paintings. The views are familiar, but the subtext is the underlying chi, the sweeping momentum. The earth “breathes” in and out with compositions of uplifting shapes.”

Daryl D. Johnson was born in Manhattan, grew up in the suburbs of NYC and moved to New Hampshire in 1988. Johnson studied at the Vermont Studio School and The Art Students League of New York. Johnson’s paintings have won numerous awards and are in private and corporate collections throughout the world including Fidelity Investments, Toledo Botanical Garden, Delta Airlines, General Electric and PepsiCo. She maintains a studio in Amherst, NH.
