Job Johnson - "The Story of Job"
Exhibition Dates: May 14th - extended until July 12th!
The Job Johnson project is an on-going collection of oral and written stories, family history, and landmarks from central Pennsylvania as told through the drawings done by an alter ego named Job Johnson who lived at the beginning of the Industrial Era. (1860 to 1937)
The project incorporates folklore from a historical first person narrative perspective. These works reflect a need for conservation as well as those tiny, nearly forgotten reminders of Pennsylvania’s multicultural roots. Each drawing that I've made for this project is done on my own hand-made paper framed in hand-built recycled wood frames.
