Jaime Johnson Wins Featured Artist Contest

I am very honored to announce January's Featured Artist Contest winner: Jaime Johnson. Read more about Jaime and her artwork in this press release that was sent to the media. Visit her website to see more of her work.

Every month, American Frame, a web-based custom framing  and art printing company , sponsors a contest for artists who sell and display work through American Frame’s online Art Gallery .  Winners are selected by customer votes on Facebook and receive a cash award and promotion through American Frame. This month’s winner is photographer Jaime Johnson.

A native of Mississippi, Johnson grew up surrounded by the beauty of nature and eventually brought her talent and interest in the photographic arts to its many enchantments: rain, birds in flight, the special gray light reflected off a bayou. Johnson’s formal training includes a B.F.A. from the University of Mississippi and an M.F.A. in Photography at Louisiana Tech University.  She recently won the Grand Prize in the Maine Media Workshops international contest “Character: Portraits and Stories that Reveal the Human Condition.” She was also named a finalist for the “2014 Clarence John Laughlin Award.” Her work has appeared in publications such as Light Leaked, Muybridge's Horse, and Seites and been shown at venues such as the SOHO Photo Gallery in New York, the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado, and the New Orleans Photo Alliance in New Orleans, Louisiana.

In the winning work, “Rain,” Johnson has transformed the familiar site of falling rain into something entirely new. The pink rain conjures a sense of dreaming and asks the viewer to consider the magic of light and the subjectivity of color. A very narrow black frame such as American Frame’s Standard with no mat or an unframed canvas would serve as perfect complements to the sense of floating the image creates.
