The mission of the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center art exhibitions program is to celebrate the diversity and rich culture of our home. It is our goal to create thought-provoking exhibitions that encourage a new perspective of Johnson County’s place within the global community.

Exhibitions are diverse in medium and artists with a five-show rotation throughout the year.

Many of the works in the exhibit are available for purchase directly through the artist, and all proceeds are retained by the artist.

Pointillism creates a visual effect through the application of spots of color that blend in the viewer’s eyes appearing as luminous, brilliant colors and shapes. Artist Catherine Kirkland demonstrates this neo-impressionist, labor-intensive painting technique through her many works of space-inspired imagery.

An artist reception and talk will be held Thursday, June 21, 5:00pm-7:00pm.
