Lois Johnson is a print artist who moved from the open spaces of Wisconsin to the city streets of Philadelphia, where she now resides. This contrast in living spaces has provided the inspiration for her work, in which she layers and blends together the natural and the man-made—the expansive plains and the soaring skyscrapers of her travels. She examines the ways in which man interacts with his environment, seeking safe, private enclosures within the chaos of society. Johnson’s work resides in this imaginary world that sprouts from physical realities, presenting transformative and transcendent spaces. Her pieces are in the permanent collection at The National Museum of Art in Washington, D.C.; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, among others.

Johnson has been active in printmaking since the early 1980’s. She received a Pennsylvania State Council on the Arts Individual Artist Grant for experimentation in offset lithography and a Percent for Art Commission for the City of Philadelphia, for which she created a limited edition print for City Hall Council Chambers. She has also exhibited her prints throughout Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Institute of Contemporary Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Brandywine Graphic Workshop. Johnson also acted as Grand Marshall for the 2008 Graduation at University of the Arts, Philadelphia.
