Will Johnson Open Studio

San Jose ceramicist Will Johnson will be a participant in The Art Of Living Black (TAOLB), the Bay Area’s longest running annual African American exhibition of its kind.

Johnson's Open Studio will be February 25th & 26th, March 3rd & 4th from 11am–5pm at the Black Bean Ceramic Art Center located at 561 Emory St., San Jose.

The TAOLB was co-founded by Jan Hart-Schuyers and Rae Louise Hayward. Both remarkable women have passed away but, their legacy lives on.

The driving force for Jan and Rae founding TAOLB was to present to the public artworks from artists of African descent, to show the richness and diversity of the artists and to give them exposure in the art world. Together they joined with the Richmond Art Center (RAC) in 1997, to have an annual exhibition for bay area African American Artists. The exhibition features emerging and established artists. The TAOLB Exhibition and Art Tour is a yearly event which is held at the RAC presented to the public between January and March. For more information, please visit
