Mildred C. Johnson


Mildred C. Johnson graduated from the University of Oregon in 1948 with a degree in architecture. After working in San Francisco and New York City as an architect and designer, she moved to the Boston area and began her career as a painter and fiber artist. She taught weaving and design for many years and exhibited widely in and around Boston.

Mildred moved to Maine in 2004 and maintained a studio at Fort Andross in Brunswick for many years, working primarily on assemblages and mixed media collage. Mildred also opened a gallery studio in Fort Andross and showed her work in conjunction with the Brunswick Art Walks for several years. She has hosted studio visits with various student groups (Art Van in Bath, Brunswick High School) and has worked as a volunteer at Spindleworks in Brunswick. Mildred lived in Topsham until her passing in May 2017.

Of her work, Mildred says I honestly cant remember a time when I wasnt making art. Im still playing with found materials and I still feel the excitement of discovery that I remember as a child. And, continues, quoting from Robert Rauschenberg You begin with the possibilities of the material."

Frontier Cafe will host an exhibition of Mildred Johnson's work from October 2 to November 13, 2017. More than fifty pieces of Mildred's work will be for sale. There will also be a gathering of friends of Mildred sometime during the show. Please let Susie Wren know if you would like an invitation. We look forward to seeing you at Frontier.
