Arts and Science Council CSA Community Supported Art

Cheryl Johnson Selected as 1 of 9 Top Artists in Charlotte, NC for ASC-CSA

Community Supported Art

You may have heard a thing or two about Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). It’s a popular way for consumers to buy seasonal food right from their local farms. Well ASC has put a spin on CSA and you don’t want to miss out. Visual and craft artists from the Charlotte region are seasonally invited to participate in ASC’s Community Supported Art (CSA) program, an exciting model of art support and distribution that establishes lasting relationships between collectors and patrons.

How does it work? Nine carefully selected artists receive a commission of $2,000 to create 50 works of art. This work is then sold in the form of 50 “shares” to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community. A “share” will consist of one piece from each of the nine artists and will be delivered in 3 monthly allocations. These are exclusive events for shareholders only that enable artists and their patrons to meet and connect.

ASC’s Community Supported Art Program is an adaptation of the successful Community Supported Art program in Minneapolis/St. Paul which was created by mnartists.org and Springboard for the Arts. ASC’s model is supported in part by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

"Thank you ASC for this wonderful Honor and Opportunity." Cheryl Johnson

Wysteria N°20181103 Painting by Cheryl Johnson
Cheryl Johnson is an American painter known for her gestural abstract paintings that evoke natural impressions of the landscape.

My philosophy is a very simple one:

I believe in creativity, imagination, and self-expression. I am a painter. I believe art has something important to say about the human condition.

Art leads to compassion and sensitivity and the world needs both.

I want people to say my work has an air of fearlessness; hopefully profoundly original.

Above all, I desire that my paintings have a certain gravitas and authority in my arrangement of forms and colors.

SERIES Secret Forests

Fall Colors Emerging Painting by Cheryl Johnson
Remember Secret Forest at Noon Painting by Cheryl Johnson

"I am an artist painting in the language of abstraction. I see the opportunity to make something amazing. My work continually evolves and changes as I explore emotion and the idea of place. The verdant forests of North Carolina, the translucent skies of Hawaii, the sea surrounding the island of Kauai are all subjects explored in my work.

Series continues to examine secret forests as I am inspired by the beauty of nature: landscape, changing seasons, and the passing of time.


“It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.”

- Vincent Van Gogh

My paintings are built up in many layers which are enhanced or scraped off as they are being applied. Lines, shapes, colors and marks evolve as the painting develops to multiple layers. The final outcome is similar to how we experience life itself. Unfolding. Developing. Evolving.

"Even now, Cheryl, as so many dreams of yours are in the midst of coming true, know that I have dreamed even BIGGER and BETTER for you than you can now comprehend. " The Universe
