Derek Johnston

Aspen, CO

Derek changed the entire course of his life to work with the Center (as a Workshop intern in 1991 and then as full time staff from 1992-1994). He assisted Kathleen Kenyon with all creative and educational programs and curated Fragile Landscapes. A persistent and dynamic artist, he learned the hard way that “perfection” is finally unattainable given the nature of a not-for-profit artists space! He has shown his creative work at the Aspen Art Museum, Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago.
