"Dreamscape" by Johnny Johnson
22 x 14 inches image size acrylic painting on paper (2007) -- framed 28 x 20 inches
Johnny P. Johnson born in Hendersonville, NC, arrived in Fredericksburg, VA, in 1959, to teach art at Walker Grant High School. Johnny received his B.S degree from Virginia State College and his MFA from Howard University with additional study at the Corcoran School of Art. He taught at the University of Mary Washington and James Monroe High School, retiring in 1991. An award winning artist, teacher, juror and humanitarian, Johnson has exhibited his work internationally in the U.S., France, Benin, and Jamaica. His paintings are in many corporate, diplomatic and private collections. A founding member of Art First Gallery in 1992, Johnson continues to teach and mentor artists of all ages.
What began as a job evolved into a life commitment to family, church,community, and art. There are a few people in recent years who have had so profound an effect on this city. There is no one who has so deeply touched and influenced so many of us; neighbors, friends, artists, and students. His work encompasses three major themes: Family, as expressed through his many Mother and Child and Father and Son works. Nature, particularly landscapes, trees and water. Social Commentary, with an emphasis on sports, the homeless and the less advantaged.
