As mentioned on KQED, the new exhibit, Mitchell Johnson: Selected Paintings 1990-2013, is in two venues in Menlo Park and Palo Alto during February. This show is an unusual grouping of 30 paintings that span more than 20 years. Newer small paintings from Cape Cod and Europe are on view at Flea Street Cafe during January-March, 2013. Large paintings and earlier paintings from California and Europe that explore both abstraction and Fairfield Porter-like representation are on view at Castilleja's Anita Seipp Gallery during February. Seipp Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10-3 and you will need to enter through the Castilleja office and sign in. There is an artist reception, Valentine's Day, February 14, 2013, 5:30-7:30. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are coming. Below are a few of the twenty two paintings at Castilleja. You can see more available work at www.mitchelljohnson.com and on FaceBook. A new catalog is available by request and will be inserted in the Bay Area NY Times Sunday, Feb 10.
