Gallery at The Rancho Santa Fe Botanical Gardens - Kendall Johnson
While in Claremont I discovered that there is a gallery at the adminstrative building in the Rancho Santa Botanical Gardens. This show was by Kendal Johnson and highlights Johnson's Pasture, an area a few miles northwest of Claremont.
It caught my attention as I have run countless times through Johnson's Pasture while a cross country and track and field athlete at Pomona College. I had no idea that anyone connected with the Johnson family was still alive or at least in the area.
As you can see, Kendall creates an variety of work inspired by the area. There are some traditional flat paintings, and in this photo, you can see some dimensional work. Twigs collected from the are and adhered to a panel painted black.
The work is complimented with some great anecdotes from Johnson family lore.
Gallery open to the public daily, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Admission to the gallery is included with standard admission or membership.
