Portraits Gallery by Sculptor Barry Woods Johnston

Barry Woods Johnston achieves sculptural eloquence through lovingly rendered details, painstaking design and compositional flow, but his skill is such that we simply enter and become a part of his achievement. So effortless seems the sculptor’s artistry that technique never intrudes to spoil our appreciation. - Steve Mirabella, Art Critic
