One Size Fits All: Banners and Altered Cabinet Cards by Amy Johnquest
Salmon Falls Gallery is delighted to exhibit the art of Easthampton artist Amy Johnquest November 2 through the end of the year. Her art is unmistakably hers, amusing, odd and riveting in its blend of vintage images overlaid by completely current adjustments. Definitely a fun carnival ride that does not omit the sideshow.

By using found objects, vintage photos, and textiles as her base, Johnquest (AKA the BannerQueen) alters and paints over these materials creating transcendent atmospheres. Ranging from the sublime to cosmic jokes, Johnquest likes to consider the big picture (life and death) in a reverent yet playful way. Johnquest obtained the moniker of BannerQueen in 1999 when she began painting sideshow banner themed art with a pop culture twist. Much of her work continues to evoke a carnivalesque feel and it often advertises things that are not for sale or perhaps may not even exist. 

During this exhibition signed copies of her book “Altered Ancestors” along with some of the original art featured in the book will be available and on view as well.
