All-Stars, Heroes, Juicers, Old Yards: New Baseball Paintings by Will Johnson

The season begins anew

All-Stars, Heroes, Juicers, Old Yards: New Baseball Paintings by Will Johnson

If there is any justice in this world – there usually isn't – then Will Johnson will become as well-known for his painting as he is for his music. As a solo artist and member of Centro-matic, Monsters of Folk, and South San Gabriel, Johnson has forged a formidable music career, but also finds the time to explore visual art. Working in a folk-art style, his paintings focus on "baseball players and ... old, long-gone stadiums." Subjects range from Bret Boone to Roger Clemens to Arlington Stadium, which stopped hosting Rangers games in 1993. Celebrate the start of a new season and the work of this accomplished local artist at the opening reception: Sat., April 6, 7-9pm. Exhibit runs through Sun., May 5. Yard Dog, 1510 S. Congress, 912-1613. www.yarddog.com.
