Arts Alliance Opens New Solo Artist Exhibit 
at the Charles Regional Medical Center

Show Runs Through October 5, 2016

Gordon R. Johnson, Artist

Gordon R. Johnson was born and raised in Oxon Hill, Maryland. Growing up, he always had the desire to own his own business and enjoyed art, drawing, building and creating just about anything. Gordon soon found himself performing odds and ends home improvement jobs for his family and friends, and established  his own home im provement business where he worked until retirement. 

Once retired, Gordon began to think about hobbies and building a workshop for wood projects. Before he knew it, he found himself drawn to a few Bob Ross instructional videos on painting. The workshop quickly turned into an art studio, and he has been painting still life, seascapes and landscapes in watercolor, acrylic, oils...and loving it! Gordon continues his instruction under local art instructors and finding new inspirations to his paintings.

The gallery  can be viewed online at  Medical Center Gallery .  The artworks are available for purchase;  Gordon  can be reached at

The University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center Gallery is located at 5 Garrett Avenue, La Plata, MD. Gallery hours are 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, daily.
