Ubuntu. I am, because you are.”
- Archbishop Desmond Tutu

”Motivated by disruption, the aesthetics of change and shifts in perception, boyoyoboy! gallery presents art which confront dynamic tension and challenges identities, within a place. We represent Southern African artists, whom we believe to be significant change agents, producing works of exceptional quality & cultural significance. boyoyoboy! artists and their work stand outside the circle of conformity and the expected.

We appreciate any opportunity to introduce our artists and share more on their lives, backgrounds, personalities and professional output. boyoyoboy! is available to meet for private consultations in Chicago. We also encourage anyone to visit our physical gallery space, as well as a host of other galleries and artists in beautiful Mineral Point.

boyoyoboy! is committed to three curatorial initiatives. Exhibition + representation, focused on engendering social transformation in the spirit of ubuntu, however embryonic that process might be. We cooperate in presenting progressive projects, including exhibitions, installations & performances in various locations. We provide an opportunity for artists, based within and outside Africa, to explore challenging territory such as unequal power structures and socio political constructs, while engaging in direct dialogue within the African, European or American context, depending on their origin.

Janice Johnson
Chestnut Hill Studio

225 Commerce Street
(608) 482-4164

Curiosity and creativity have fed my soul from earliest childhood. My early education was in Botany and
Horticulture. After a career in agribusiness, MS forced me to rethink how else to use my talents. Art not only feeds my soul but is a way to make a meaningful place in the world.

Most of my work is of botanical subjects done in watercolors. More recently I have begun exploring colored pencil, ink and ceramic printing. The only constants are realism and luminous color.

My work is available as prints, cards and ceramic tiles.

Twins, Joelle and Katie White are merging their ceramic art into one partnership business. Introducing the Globe Clay Center located at Howdle Studio in Mineral Point, WI! The sisters create and display beautifully crafted pottery, sculpture, and jewelry in the late Bruce Howdle’s studio and gallery. Howdle was a beloved mentor to many, and an advocate for the arts, as well as the historic preservation of Mineral Point. The building which houses this new business was originally constructed in 1876 as The Globe Hotel. Howdle bought the crumbling structure in 1983 and completely rejuvenated it to its historic originality. Katie and Joelle were Bruce’s studio assistants before he passed away in August of 2018. The pair wish to honor their mentor and the predecessors of the building by creating this clay center where they can share their art with the community.

We support local arts initiatives that foster opportunities for artists and art tourism. We’re historic preservationists, who make our home in Mineral Point, Wisconsin—a living museum. We’re environmentalists: the greenest building is one that’s already been built, (our gallery was built in 1891). We support and encourage our artists to use reclaimed and recycled materials, many do.
We love our country, support cancer research, revel in the tranquil beauty of the driftless area, and have a particular fondness for goats.
