Shifting Fancy of the Crowd // New works by Howard Sherman
(artist will be in attendance)
Saturday April 01st, 2017 6-9pm

Howard Sherman received his Masters of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from the University of North Texas in 2006. During his tenure at UNT, Sherman was fortunate enough to work with esteemed professor Vernon Fisher before Fisher’s retirement. It was during this time that the artist discovered and defined a visual language that has continued to evolve.

The large paintings facilitate the immense physicality within Sherman’s work, while leaving space for his keen sense of formal resolution. The frenetic and muscular heft of his work is balanced with a measured precision and a thoughtful integration of a number of historical art history influences. Sherman’s cartoonish figuration complements his bold use of abstract mark making which can be construed as portraits, punch lines or poems. He is constantly refining his visual and conceptual vocabulary, recently experimenting with sculptural surfaces and collage.

Sherman was featured in a solo traveling exhibition originating at the Art Museum of Southeast Texas. His work is in several museum collections and is on permanent display at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas. The artist has been profiled numerous times in New American Paintings, appears in the 2010 book Texas Artists Today and was chosen for the cover of the recently released art history book Texas Abstract: Modern/Contemporary by Michael Paglia and Jim Edwards. Rice University is now collecting his personal artifacts for its research center.

In addition to his many accomplishments, Sherman continues to further his craft and studies. He has been awarded residencies at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, School of Visual Arts, the McColl Center for Visual Art, Vermont Studio Center, Jentel Artist Residency Program and the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation.

Sherman has been in a number of solo exhibitions across the United States, and his work has been featured in group exhibitions in Texas, California, New York, Florida, Spain, India and Peru.

Sherman lives and works in Houston and New York City.
