Vernon Howell, Artist

Sunday will see artist Vernon Howell in the Renaissance Art Gallery to give guided walks around his art displays in the "Class Acts--Earth, Wind and Fire" show closing this Sunday.
Vernon Howell
Vernon is a native of Huntington, West Virginia, where he lived and worked most of his life. He received his public education here and chose to teach art in the same school system.

After 30 years teaching, he took advantage of an early retirement opportunity to become a full time studio artist working in a variety of media. Throughtout the United States his work has been selected for private collections.
He has art in the permanent collections of museums, businesses and corporations, including four pieces in the permanent collection of McGraw Hill Publishing Company and the West Virginia State Museum. An exhibition highlight was being invited to exhibit in the National Gallery of American Art in Washington, D.C.
Perpetual motion
