Professor of Art Sue Johnson has been awarded a prestigious 2023 Virginia Commission for the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship. One of eight artists in the state of Virginia to receive this award, Johnson will use the fellowship support to complete work on her forthcoming artist book, "Burn a Pan Tonight: Still Life with Woman." The project focuses on images of women in advertising between 1850-1970 and integrates Johnson's found poetry and new original drawings and paintings made to accompany the text.
