Sue Johnson: the Alternate Encyclopedia
The Alternate Encyclopedia exhibit will be on display in the
Tweed Museum through March 28. Over a period of many years, artist Sue
Johnson has developed a collection of prints, drawings, paintings, and
found objects, which refer to the pseudo-scientific nature
of early natural history illustrations and texts. Working with local collections,
Johnson developed a unique installation for the Tweed Museum of Art. As
she states, The idea to create a fully fictitious encyclopedia came
to me when I realized that I could entertain my desire for the fantastic
while maintaining my interest in the pursuit of objective truths.
Women in Art, a selection from the permanent collection at
the Tweed Museum of Art, will be on display through March 14.
Tembes, an exhibition of carved wood panels from Surinam,
will be on display through March 14 in the Tweed Museum of Art.
