The Johnson Collection

TJC Gallery will be closed April 24 - May 4

We will reopen May 8th with a new exhibition:

Draped in Time: Spanish Moss and the Tapestry of the South curated by Landon Bryant

Draped in Time, guest curated by Landon Bryant, weaves together artistic perspectives spanning nearly two centuries, uniting the South’s complex history and rich cultures under the ethereal veil of Spanish moss—an enduring symbol of the complicated, dynamic, and often misunderstood identity of Southern art and society. In the landscapes, genre scenes, scientific treatments, and conceptual explorations featured in this exhibition, Spanish moss performs multifarious roles as a recurrent backdrop for the many diverse and interconnected stories that the South has to tell.

The exhibition will be on display in TJC Gallery from May 8 through July 20, 2024

Contact Blake Batten at with any questions.


Hailed by The Magazine Antiques with having staged a “quiet art historical revolution” and expanding “the meaning of regional” through its “exhibitions, loans, publications, and institutional partnerships,” the Johnson Collection seeks to illuminate the rich history and diverse cultures of the American South.

Today, the Johnson Collection counts iconic masterworks among its holdings, as well as representative pieces by an astonishing depth and breadth of artists, native and visiting, whose lives and legacies form the foundation of Southern art history. From William H. Johnson’s Boats in the Harbor to Anni Albers’ Connections, the collection embraces the region’s rich history and confronts its complexities, past and present.
