W. Medford Johnston's paintings offer a visual interplay between line, form and color that is specific to his experiences of the Samburu, Kikuyu and Masai cultures during travels throughout Tanzania and Kenya. They feature variations on a theme inspired by Masai walking staffs, which are used not only for balance while herding cattle, but also as a protective weapon against animals that threaten both the herdsmen and their charges. The jagged contour of the staff in juxtaposition with the graceful poise of its owner, seen in silhouette against the horizon of East African plains, inspired Johnston's years-long study of balance, counterbalance and dissonance in the interdependent relationship between people and nature.

      Were you able to? Some of the openings are easier to find us than others. I think a wristband or tag of some kind will be te best. How would you feel about a movie? I'm thinking Monuments Men might be a good idea and we would have to meet at a set time and place?
