The White River Artists are a group of painters from East Central Indiana.

When Oil Meets Water- Two Muncie Artisits


Ann Johnson Artist Statement:

“Hopefully the viewer will be as exhilarated by the discovery of my story as I have been in painting these spontaneous watercolors.  For me, this medium can tell a story in so many different ways, enabling me to capture a variety of fleeting effects and ideas.  The shadow of a smile, a flash of light, unexpected bursts of color with a few strokes of the brush. For many years as F B Fogg, I made art for the world, now I paint for myself, and I hope one sees the love of a thing well done, just for you, the viewer to enjoy.”
