Spring 2016 Yefim Cherkis Memorial Scholarship Recipient – Joseph Johnston

Congratulations to Joseph Johnston for winning the Spring 2016 Yefim Cherkis Memorial Scholarship! Jospeh will be exhibiting his winning portfolio, “Francisco: Struggling with Addictions” in Gallery Obscura in the Fall ’16 semester.

“There is no one I can talk to about Francisco…not my sisters (they want him deported), not my old friends (they want nothing to do with him and no longer visit us), not our neighbors (they have seen too much already), nor the people I work with (too personal and inappropriate). Francisco is an alcoholic and drug addict.”- Joseph Johnston

“I come home to find Francisco sleeping off a hangover. The dogs have torn apart a roll of toilet paper before also falling asleep beside him.”
