Clara K. Johnson is mostly known for her multi-media, abstract paintings. Over the past two years she's delved into “Creation Beyond The Surface”, designing 3D wire sculptures carried at StUf n SUCh in Lafayette Village, as well as beautiful decorative bowls made of paper and fine fabrics available at the Little Art Gallery in Cameron Village in Raleigh and the Duke Nasher Museum Store in Durham.
While it was her submission of 3D sculptures that impressed the ArtSpace judging committee, her bowls are quite popular as well.
