Keith Smith connects the relationship between art and science. His work uses repetitive patterns and forms to reflect the macro and microscopic visual language in nature.
After a lifetime as a painter, in 1968, J. Seward Johnson, Jr., turned his talents to the medium of sculpture. Since then, more than 200 of Johnson’s lifesize cast bronze figures have been featured in private collections in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia, as well as prominent places in the public realm such as the Rockefeller Center and the World Trade Center in New York City and Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, Canada. Johnson’s most dramatic work — and also his largest — is the 70’ aluminum giant entitled “The Awakening.” This sculpture was selected for the International Sculpture Conference Exhibition and is sited in Washington, D.C. on a long term loan. Subsequent exhibitions include: the Galleria Ca D’oro, Piazza di Spagna, Rome, the RW Norton Art Museum, the Knoxville Museum of Art, the Wave Hill Sculpture Park, the Jacksonville Art Museum, at Yale University, and solo exhibitions in Connecticut, New Jersey, Texas, California, New York, Washington, D.C., as well as in Mexico and Canada. Corporate collectors include the Nike Corporation, Arthur Andersen, Dial, Commerz Bank, and The Trammell Crow Company. Two exhibitions of Johnson’s realistic sculptures are now touring in major European cities and will continue throughout the next year.

Lenora Myers Starling Fountain
At the intersection of Buena Vista Rd. Wynnton Rd.
Dedicated in December, 1929 to the memory of Leonora Myers Sarling, who, according to the Columbus Ledger, moved to Columbus with her husband and became a “leader in civic, social and religious circles here. She was a pioneer in the Christian Science faith in Columbus and was active in numerous charitable endeavors.” It went on to say that she met her “tragic death while engaged in an errand of mercy.”
Another article notes that the fountain is a “beautiful memorial to a beautiful life…one of the permanent attractions and adornments of Wynnton.” The fountain was commissioned by her niece, and was carved in Italy. Many today mistakenly say that the figure gazes toward Ft. Benning, but the contemporary description was this: “the majestic figure of a woman poised in the attitude of soaring through space. One hand shields her eyes, as she gazes into the future.”
