Join us as we bring our year-long celebration of Seward Johnson’s life to a close with an exhibition featuring the work of local artists who have apprenticed and studied at the Johnson Atelier. Hosted by the Hopewell Valley Arts Council and the Pennington School, A Community of Artists, a show of works by local artists once part of the Johnson Atelier community, will be exhibited from January 8 to February 2, 2024, with a public opening reception on Thursday, January 11 from 6 pm to 7:30 pm at the Silvia Gallery of Art at the Pennington School. In addition to the opening reception, this exhibition is open to the public from January 8 to February 2 on Thursdays between 5 pm and 6:30 pm. Appointments are available Monday-Wednesday from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm.

Founded in 1974, the Johnson Atelier rapidly became an epicenter of artistic exploration stemming directly from Seward’s passion to discover innovative methods and materials in the pursuit of making art.  From all over the world, hundreds of artists gathered at the Johnson Atelier and benefited from its unique collaborative apprenticeship program, honing their skills while working with established artists such as Georgia O’Keefe, George Segal, Michele Oka Doner, Joel Shapiro, and Isaac Witkin. Many of the Johnson Atelier members have gone on to start companies, foundries, and nonprofits that continue to impact the art world. Today, many of these artists have settled in Hopewell Valley and are a testament to Seward’s belief, not only in ideas but in helping people reach their full potential. Explore Seward’s artistic legacy with us! The Silva Gallery of Art is located at 112 W Delaware Avenue, Pennington, NJ
