A Look Back at the 34th Art in Gadsden Award Winners

Best in Show

Joe Johnson, “Time Travel”, 2022, oil on canvas, 60 x 42 inches

Sponsored by Doug Croley Insurance Services, Inc.

Joe has a way of interpreting life through his paintings unlike anything I have seen. His dramatic use of color, his grasp on abstract suggestion and bold geometry induce a feeling of excitement and joy. The dynamism that emanates from his canvas grabs the viewer from across the room and demands attention. Upon deeper inspection of his work one is drawn into a world of excited frenetic energy, of sound, light, music and pure adrenaline. At once a recognizable place and at the same time a mysterious expression of the artist’s innermost world.
