“One of the things about getting older was knowing that so many moments weren’t just moments, they were gifts.” This sentence found in Elizabeth Stout’s novel Olive Kitteridge speaks to this exhibition. Curtis Johnson’s furniture starts with the gift of seeing beauty in certain figured woods. Figured wood inspires the furniture. Susan Johnson’s artworks for this exhibit affirms life’s joys in small pleasures that Johnson sees and experiences in her daily life – the glass of wine while sitting on the window seat looking out upon the special nature of the Northwest or watching the patterns of the rocks as seen in our mountain streams.
