Barry Woods Johnston
Barry Johnston dedicated himself to sculpture after earning a B.S. in architecture from Georgia Institute of Technology in 1969. He then studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the National Academy of Design and the Enzo Cardini and Romanelli Studios in Florence. He began his career in Washington, D.C., where he created the acclaimed "Wedlock," a 19½' bronze for Lafayette Centre. Johnston brings to his work a daring imagination. Subjects are derived from religion, literature, and contemporary dilemmas. Johnston is known for capturing energized form and anatomy in motion with robust, gravity-defying figures. He brings a keen eye for realism to his numerous portrait commissions.
