I will be opening a solo show of my paintings and drawing at Dallas gallery Steve Paul Productions on Oct 16.  Really looking forward to this — hope to see some new and familiar faces at this great little Deep Ellum gallery.

I will be showing some of my favorite, slow-cooked, pieces.  Some of these took months to paint — loved every minute.

Come by for a glass of wine and a look!

Opening reception for Parallel Visions: Paintings and Drawings 2010-2012
Oct 16, 6-9pm
Steve Paul Productions, 2814 Main St, Dallas (at Main and Malcom X)



Marianne Howard is an artist who finds inspiration for her work through the pursuit of her passions, including the institutional investment business, food, wine, and global travel. Extensive travel throughout the United States, Europe, South America, Asia, Africa, and Australia, has allowed Marianne to explore the power and cultural transcendence of visual images. Among her journeys, a month long trip to Myanmar in 2001 led to her 2003 exhibit, “Focus on Burma (Myanmar): Photographer’s Treasures from the Collection of Marianne Howard”, featured at The Trammell and Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art in Dallas, Texas.

Marianne studied drawing, painting, printmaking and photography at Wittenberg University, Springfield, OH, and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL. Her work has been exhibited and published nationally and is held in private collections internationally. Additionally, she holds certificates from The Court of Master Sommeliers and The International Sommelier Guild and is also a certified wine educator by The Wine Academy of Spain. An active community supporter, Marianne is a frequent conference panelist and guest speaker.
