PAAM is pleased to showcase watercolors and block prints created by Lester Johnson. Gifted to the PAAM permanent collection in 2016 by Josephine Johnson, this unprecedented body of work explores how the sights of Provincetown informed the development of Johnson’s unique and important visual voice.
Lester’s roots in Provincetown go back to 1953, when he had his first show at Earle Pilgrim’s shop at 393 Commercial Street. Throughout the next decade he would go on to have five one-man annual exhibitions at the Sun Gallery as well as several exhibitions at the HCE Gallery. Johnson’s work was also exhibited at the Albert Merola Gallery, Acme Fine Art and the Provincetown Art Association and Museum.
