Gellman Room
Tuckahoe Artists Association

Paintings in mixed media

The Association was formed in 1971 by a group of local artists to provide educational programs for its members, to arrange regular exhibits of their work, and to encourage them to further develop their talents through classes and critiques.
Today, the TAA remains committed to its original purposes. It meets six times a year: four program meetings with presentations by well known artists, art historians, or authors in September, October, January, and February; a field trip to a gallery, museum, or artist’s studio in March or April; and an annual luncheon meeting in May. The Association engages exhibit spaces for members to display their original art work four to six times a year.

Catherine D. Johnson


An excerpt from Catherine's resume:

"My interest in photography began 25 years ago when I signed up for my first course in photography at the Virginia Museum, Richmond, Virginia, where I continue to take classes...In January of 1996 I became a member of the gallery called Artspace, in Richmond, Virginia. I have participated in many group shows and have had three individual shows at this gallery...Mostly, I prefer to photograph people but will occasionally venture into the landscape area of photography. However, in my landscapes, I try to include people in the photograph, even if I have to set the timer and be my own subject!"
