Location: Nighthawks Lounge, 175 Tracy St. Athens GA 30601
The Lyndon House Arts Center and Lyndon House Arts Foundation is thrilled to announce the Lyndon House Artists Limited Edition Series print, Red Frames by Ridley Howard. Howard worked with master screen printer, Amanda Burk of Flat File Print Shop, to create this original edition of 50 scheduled to launch and be available for purchase on September 26, 5:00 pm at Nighthawks Lounge. Each print is $108 including tax.
Ridley Howard was born in 1973 in Atlanta, and currently lives and works in Athens, GA. He received his BA and BFA from the University of Georgia and his MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. He is currently represented by Marinaro Gallery, NY; Andréhn-Schiptjenko Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden and Paris, France. He has a forthcoming solo show in Paris in early 2024.
His work has been written about in Art Forum, Art in America, New York Times, New Yorker, Brooklyn Rail, Boston Globe, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, among others. He has received awards from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His work has been shown at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Savannah College of Art, the Knoxville Museum of Art, the Morris Museum of Art, the High Museum and the Atlanta Contemporary.
Howard makes paintings that blend vastly different visual languages: among them American Scene Painting, Italian Renaissance, Pop Art and Geometric Abstraction. Subtle and deceptively straightforward, the paintings invoke a sense of monumentality while retaining a lingering intimacy and stillness.
