J. Johnson Gallery closes its fifteen year run presenting internationally and nationally recognized artists to the North Florida region with an exhibition of work by Miami artist Carlos Betancourt, one of the first artists to show with the gallery. Betancourt’s recently released book with Skira/Rizzoli, Imperfect Utopia, and his retrospective at San Juan’s Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico have received much acclaim from publications like Interview Magazine and Artforum. For his final exhibition at J. Johnson Gallery, the artist will present a series of his newest photographs, some large wall works and two installation pieces. The April opening for Carlos Betancourt’s exhibition benefited Friends of Jacksonville Animals (FOJA). FOJA is an all volunteer organization dedicated to the wellbeing of homeless animals in Jacksonville. The funds raised at the opening reception will assist FOJA in its mission to reduce unnecessary euthanasia, educate the public about responsible pet ownership, and enrich the lives of homeless animals in the shelter environment.
