Join the Markeim Arts Center in welcoming our fall exhibitor, Anthony Johnson, at our opening reception on September 25 from 4:00-8:00 pm. The reception will include a happy hour sponsored by Double Nickel Brewery (4:00-8:00 pm), a kids activity table (4:00-8:00 pm), and an artist talk and Q&A (beginning at 6:00 pm).
Anthony Johnson is an artist and father of 3 based out of Collingswood, NJ. Johnson’s practice is centered in neo expressionism, with inspiration and subject matter pulling from his daily life and, most importantly, the memories and experiences he’s gained from childhood into his adult life. Johnson is a self-taught artist and has been perfecting his practice since 2015, which is centered in mixed media and employs the use of oil, acrylic, spray paint, pastels, and resin. Johnson creates exquisite works of art that tell the life stories of Johnson as well as of those of his loved ones and the community around him. Johnson considers himself extremely blessed to have a family while also enjoying quality time pursuing his passion of painting. More information is available at www.ONETAarts.com.

Markeim is a community based on arts
Situated just a few blocks from downtown Haddonfield, Markeim is one of Haddonfield’s great jewels! The Arts are the expression of a community. Since the advent of the Haddonfield Arts and Crafts League in 1956, the goal of the Center has been to promote the creation and enjoyment of the visual arts. Now over 60 years later, development of expanded programs and services for artists ensures that the Markeim Arts Center will continue to fulfill its commitment to that community. We are grateful to our sponsors and friends for their contributions to this lasting legacy.
