Enjoy a hearty lunch with art as the main entrée.

This luncheon is in partnership with New City Arts Initiative.

Join Tom Tom Artists-In-Residents James Johnson and Frank Walker as they discuss their work during an informal artist talk at the Charlottesville's Welcome Gallery. Bring your own lunch and learn the techniques and inspiration behind the works of a pair of local artists.

Frank Walker was born in 1953 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Walker’s work has been shown in numerous exhibitions including the McGuffey Art Center and The Jefferson School African American Heritage Gallery. His paintings and drawings can be found in numerous private collections. Walker also has a passion for military history. He maintains an extensive collection of models and figures covering all wars of American history.

Johnson is an artist born and raised in Charlottesville with a brief stint in the Richmond area. Johnson grew up being the lone creative in a family of educators. He mostly worked in graphite in his younger years until the mid-2010's when he decided to try out inks. Johnson’s curiosity went from working with black inks to working with Copic markers and various inks. He specializes in portrait work but can be versatile.
