 April Zanne Johnson                                                                                                                 

April Zanne Johnson is primarily a painter. She is a graduate of Parsons School of Design/The New School for Social Research (1993) and received her M.F.A. at Montclair State University (2013).  She has lived in New York City and Los Angeles, but returned to permanently reside in her home state of New Jersey in a rural northwest community where she lives and keeps a studio. April is a synesthetic artist who can incorporate perceptions from additional sensory experiences and weave them into her practice. Isolation and music are essential in her creative practice. Her studio is surrounded by seventy-five acres of woodlands. The effects of forms and processes in nature ensconce her. It is this environment that feeds her practice.

Work by the artist has been exhibited and held in museum collections on three continents. Permanent collections can be seen in the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center in Brooklyn NYC, as well as Mexico City, Los Angeles and Fairfield, NJ, at the EVS Broadcast Technology Corporate Buildings. She has work held by several well know private collectors in NYC, London and Australia.

April has participated in a number of exhibitions in the cities of San Francisco, Palo Alto, Chicago, New York City, Newark and internationally at Cardiff in the United Kingdom.

April’s recent honors include; Best of 2013, Saatchi Art, London U.K., curated by Chief Curator Rebecca Wilson, this is a collection of highlights of the year, including works from our featured series: One to Watch, she was awarded Herhusid Artist Residency in Siglufjörður, Iceland, Montclair State University 2013 Dedalus Foundation Fellowship nominee for the Masters of Fine Art program, nominated by the graduate faculty of Montclair State University and the Executive Women of New Jersey Graduate Merit Scholarship Award Nominee supporting unconventional female graduate students, nominated by the Montclair State University M.F.A. graduate faculty in 2012 & 2013.
