B arry Woods Johnston sculptures are acclaimed for their vitality and vision, as well as their elegant designs and masterful rendering. Few American sculptors have been honored with so many awards from their peers. As you view these eloquent 3-dimensional designs, enjoy the discovery of unmistakable quality and narrative richness which has always defined art of enduring value. As a sculptor, Johnston has sought to be as honest as possible amidst today’s political and economic realities. Specifically, he’s created a series of life-size Shakespearean characters as well as etchings on the Book of Job and other expressions of his personal faith. Within his imagination and with the belief that truth and justice eventually prevail, he has fought to counter those corporate and governmental trends leading toward sterilization. But the powers persist. They have widened the chasm, increasingly challenging the ability of artists or entrepreneurs to function realistically. The profession of sculpture uniquely bridges the chasm between imaginative ideas and reality, betweenpossibilities and the technologies of industry. Themes of many of his sculptures are about family, but, if family brings happiness and well-being, the intensity of his life has inspired a concern for many vital issues – from Christianity and Jewish religion to metaphor and philosophy.
