Magnus Johnstone was known to many Bostonians from his tenure in town from the late ‘70s through the late ‘90s as a trailblazing radio DJ (on WZBC 90.3 FM and WMBR 88.1 FM) as well as a visual artist. He passed away on February 22, 2013, at the age of 60, after a vibrant life filled with art, music and community.
Following the very successful “Soaring Through The Matrix” show in August 2018 – one of Nave Gallery’s most popular shows ever – “Magnus Johnstone: Larger Works” is the second of what his family and friends hope will be ongoing local and national shows that will display and sell his remaining work.
