Art, Language & Play features original artwork by Stephen T. Johnson, an author and illustrator of children’s books who has been nationally published and exhibited. Johnson’s art forges connections between words, objects, and ideas.

Much of his work is characterized by an interest in the alphabet and language, which began with his book Alphabet City, a Caldecott Honor book, and A is for Art: An Abstract Alphabet, named The New York Times Illustrated Book of the Year.

Johnson discusses the exhibit and his art at the Central Library.

An accompanying exhibit of Johnson’s art, Abstractions, runs through April 28 at Weinberger Fine Art, 1800 Baltimore. Call 913.940.0104 for more information on Abstractions, including gallery hours and directions.
