June Edmonds is an American painter, teacher, and public artist. Edmonds' work is notable for its colorful, layered surfaces that draw on meditative practices to explore the relationships between color, repetition, spiritual contemplation, the power of archetypical systems, and interpersonal connection. She is an active and prominent contributor to the Los Angeles area art scene, and is a member of both the Artist's Alliance of Southern California and the Women’s Caucus for Art. Her work has been shown extensively at such venues as the California African American Museum, Huntington Beach Art Center and Watts Towers Art Center. Her paintings are held in collections throughout the United States including the California African American Museum, Los Angeles; Mead Art Museum, Amhurst College, Amhurst, MA; Davis Museum, Wellesley College, Wellesley, MA; David Owsley Museum of Art at Ball State University, Muncie, IN and The Pizzuti Collection, Columbus, OH.
