Susan is a painter and Holman Johnson was a photographer. Both looked at Pike County through the eyes of an artist.“Susan went about the Pike County countryside and all around Troy painting scenes and many things that most of us don’t notice,” White said. “She painted the backs of stores, old barns and houses. She painted people and places. She painted Pike County in a way that is familiar and then not so familiar.”White said people reacted emotionally to Berry’s paintings. Two of the most popular exhibitions at the Johnson Center for the Arts will come down on Friday. Everyone is encouraged to view these exhibits for the last time or for the first time.The upper level gallery features the artwork of Troy artist Mary Susan Berry and the lower level gallery exhibit is Troy photographer, the late Holman Johnson’s work. Johnson’s photography exhibit is back at the Johnson Center by popular demand.An artist’s reception for Berry was held Sunday afternoon and a large crowd gathered to celebrate the artwork of a native daughter.
