Trudy Johnson’s art exhibit, “For the Sake of Horses and Ballerinas,” is now open at City Hall, 110 S.E. Watula Ave in Ocala, according to a press release from the city on Jan. 21.

It will be on display today—free and open to the public—through to Tuesday, March 29, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Johnson was born in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and currently resides in Summerfield, Florida, according to the city’s press release. She earned her associate degree in building construction, before later earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts in interior design.

Her pieces reflect a love of old architecture, antiquated and forgotten things, as well as a fascination with the limitless expression of the human face. She also recently discovered a love for ballet. A self-taught artist since 2011, Johnson continues to experiment and discover new techniques, according to the release.

She has produced a protean kind of art, the release added, not sticking to one thing, only what her heart feels and her mind dictates. She explores various mediums, utilizing whatever best expresses her artistic vision.
