Congratulations to Ian Baker Johnson
Ian Baker Johnson, the 2019 selected Sacagawea Award artist, will create three unique pieces of art: one piece will be crafted for each winner, and one that will reside in the permanent Sacagawea collection at Alverno College.
Johnson is known for colorful contemporary art on canvas, paper and board. Her work is rooted in abstract expressionism. She has participated in numerous exhibitions throughout the years primarily to include juried and group shows. After receiving a BFA in studio painting, Ian continued to study at various other art institutions and with other professional artists. Always wanting to expand her focus, she currently includes works with oils, acrylics, cold wax and other mediums on paper, canvas and board.
Johnson says, like Sacagawea, “My work as a fine artist… is the result of taking risks, of moving ahead in spite of obstacles, of thinking on my feet, of making quick decisions, of using the materials at hand and of trusting my inner voice to guide me in order to create.”
