Howa Gallery 390 N 500 W, Bountiful, UT 84010, USA
October brings true inspiration and the ‘best of the best’ as Howa Gallery features two of Utah’s finest October 9 to November 7. Renowned artist, Ted Remington and prominent jewelry designer, Lisa G. Howa step forward with their vibrant and unique work in a dual exhibition that promises to display an excellence and variety the gallery has become known for since its opening in May.
Ted Remington combines soft pastel, acrylic and oil on canvas to capture the haunting beauty of the Southwest’s high desert regions. “I hear people use the words ‘how vibrant’ my art is, as well as that a given painting ‘speaks to them”, Remington says. “Hearing these two responses always gives me a sense of fulfillment for making a strong connection.” Although Ted’s general focus is southwest, he finds interest in the eclectic and abstract ultimately to evoke a sense of wonder and heighten awareness.
Lisa G. Howa realizes great joy in finding the best quality materials to produce the most incredible, one-of-a-kind jewelry seen in the country. Each piece is a work of art. “My goal is always to gather the ‘best-of-the-best’. I search out the best quality silver, the perfect stone to create the perfect signature “bobble”, Lisa says. “Each one of my necklaces is a piece of art. No two are the same and each one full of the love of creating!
An opening reception will be held October 9th from 6-9p.m. This is the second artist exhibition at Howa Gallery which strives to make a discernible impact in the world of art. “I was impressed with Thomas J. Howa’s goals and sense of purpose with and for the Art Community.” According to Remington, “He has an authentic respect for artists.”
