    The Clay Studio presents a special In Memoriam exhibition in honor of the late mixed-media artist Leroy Johnson (1937-2022). A native of Philadelphia, Johnson’s work was poetic and reflective of his many experiences in the inner city and took the form of painting, collage, and assemblage sculpture. Johnson’s In Memoriam exhibition will be on display in the Jill Bonovitz Gallery from October 13 to December 31, 2022.

    Johnson received a Masters of Human Services from Lincoln University in 1988 and was a 2014 Pew Fellow at The Pew Center for Arts and Heritage. His work was widely exhibited, with solo shows at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, Tirza Yalon Kolton Ceramic Gallery in Tel Aviv, and Camden County Historical Society. Additionally, Johnson was a participating or resident artist for several community-based arts projects, including The Village of Arts and Humanities, Taller Puertorriqueño, and The Church of the Advocate, St. Francis Academy in Baltimore, Maryland.
