Ann Brammer-Johnson is from downtown Keezletown, Virginia by way of the Midwest. Her recent work has been in “appropriation art,” juxtaposing disparate photographic images from a variety of sources to create new works, hence the title of her show, “juxtapositions.”

—from Wikipedia: Appropriation art uses pre-existing objects or images with little or no transformation applied to them. The use of appropriation has played a significant role in the history of the arts (literary, visual, musical and performing arts). In the visual arts, to appropriate means to properly adopt, borrow, recycle or sample aspects (or the entire form) of human-made visual culture. Notable in this respect are the Readymades of Marcel Duchamp.
