"Tipping Point"
May 7 - 29th, 2010 Projects Gallery

Projects Gallery is pleased to present “Tipping Point”, the gallery's inaugural exhibition of work by Susan B. Howard. Well known for her intricate oil paintings, Howard creates dense populations of imaginary creatures fraught with color and texture. By etching into many layers of paint, she crafts a very personal visual language. The fanciful yet familiar residents in her imagery chatter and interact in their Technicolor landscapes. Often humorous but never silly, these works also reflect the artist’s concern for our environment and the health of our planet. Her art is a peek into a better world she wants us all to share. Howard invites us into this world to “talk with the animals”.

Howard earned her M.F.A. from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Her work is included in several private and public collections, including The State Museum of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and WHYY-TV12. The artist was chosen to provide the artwork for a new book by Lexie Brockway Potamkin entitled “What is Love, Messages from the Heart”. The book will be released in June, 2010. She will also be featured in a new book called “100 Mid-Atlantic Artists” to be released later in 2010.

Tipping Point will run May 7 - 29, 2010 with a First Friday reception May 7th from 6-9 pm and an Artist’s Reception Saturday, May 15th from 5-7 pm. Both receptions are free and open to the public.
