All events are open to the public free of charge. For more details about art events and exhibits, call 717-815-1354.

James Johnson was born in Syracuse, New York. His art encompasses installation, sculpture, and photography and makes reference to architecture and issues surrounding representation, economics, and power. He is influenced by Conceptual Art and Minimalism. His studio is in Philadelphia.

"The Shallow Habit of Seeing" combines digital fabrication, woodworking, photography, drawing, and other media. Informed by considering recent trends in philosophy and economics, Johnson is crafting objects that address basic assumptions about image-making conventions by considering minute details of his practice and materials.
