Tour the Artist's Studio


Pumphouse Studio Gallery is open by appointment.  You can visit the studio of Michael Chesley Johnson, and he'll gladly talk to you about his process for oil and pastel painting whether in the studio or out on location, en plein air.  Also, you can view dozens of his oil and pastel paintings, many of which have not been exhibited before.  Or, talk to Michael about a commission!  If you have a favorite view, let him know.

For an appointment, contact Michael at mcj.painter@gmail.com.  We have moved so ask about new location in Western New Mexico near the Zuni pueblo.
