About the Book
Peter Frank says (October 2014)
"Julienne Johnson has spent much of the last decade exploring her potential as an artist and exploring art's potential for mindful expression. She seeks to make sense of an alienating world by finding the coherent in the inchoate and the ecstatic in the rational."

PASSION AND STRUCTURE: JULIENNE JOHNSON, 2008 – 2014
documents 18 artworks from 2 collections and 3 series of artworks, completed by Johnson between 2008 and 2014 that were curated by Peter Frank for the Taylor University, Upland, Indiana exhibition that took place at the Metcalf Gallery on Oct. 14 – Nov. 4, 2014. The book includes a photograph of Johnson at work on the "TOUCHED" series in her NoHo Studio, along with a full schedule of the events that took place opening week, including talks and a lecture by Johnson and Frank as well as his poetry reading, additional lectures and critiques by Frank.
