John J. Hodgson has been making art since 2008 with his teacher, Baris Gokturk. Since that time, John has had 11 solo exhibitions and has participated in eight group exhibits, including collaborations with Madison House Autism Foundation in Rockville, Maryland. Several of John’s works are included in private collections across the United States as well as Turkey, Germany, and Slovakia.
John’s creative sessions include time spent learning classic brush stroke techniques as well as experimenting with non-traditional tools and methods. Time, movement and creation of an individual pictorial language through an articulation of various painterly moves is the focus of his paintings. Mr. Hodgson is now participating in art classes at the Jewish Community Center of Manhattan where his classmates have been inspired to “create new kinds of art” after viewing his most recent solo exhibit.
His other interests include running in Central Park, visiting museums and galleries, hiking the Appalachian Trail, attending cooking classes and volunteer work. John currently enjoys volunteering with Orkesta Farm, the Central Park Green Team and at Materials for the Arts where he was featured in the Volunteer Spotlight of the Month.
