J. Johnson Gallery closes its fifteen year run presenting internationally and nationally recognized artists to the north Florida region with an exhibition of work by Miami artist Carlos Betancourt, one of the first artists to show with the gallery. Both Betancourt's recently released book with Skira | Rizzoli, Imperfect Utopia, and his retrospective at San Juan's Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico have recently received much acclaim from publications like Interview Magazine and Artforum. For this final exhibition at J. Johnson Gallery the artist will be presenting a series of his newest photographs as well as some larger wall works and two installation pieces. 

The opening for Carlos Betancourt's exhibition will benefit Friends of Jacksonville Animals (FOJA) and guests are invited to attend with a $10 per person donation to the organization at the door. FOJA is an all volunteer organization dedicated to the well-being of homeless animals in Jacksonville and the funds raised at the opening reception will assist with its mission to reduce unneccessary euthenasia, enrich the lives of homeless animals, and educate the public about responsisble pet ownership.
