The Millet House

Closing Reception: The Art of LaRee Merrill Johnson

Ellis Contrast.jpgThe reception will be Sept 29, 6-9 pm at the Millet House, 440 W 1st Street, in the Westside-Clark neighborhood of Mesa. Westside-Clark is celebrating our new local historic status with an exhibition of paintings by LaRee Merrill Johnson, who would have been 102 this year, and who raised her children in our neighborhood. Her son Merrill, who still lives in the family home in Westside Clark, has very kindly lent us 18 of her paintings to exhibit for one week. LaRee’s passion was to document the natural beauty she saw around her, before developers came in. If you are in the Phoenix area, you don’t want to miss this, and if you are an oldtimer, you may have stories to add. We have learned so much from the paintings: the fate of the confluence of the Verde and the Salt; the story of Sheep’s Crossing Bridge; the way that Pima cotton was developed and harvested.
