A well-known Southwest painter, print-maker and
gallery owner, he did finely rendered, etching like portraits
of time-worn Native Americans. His goal was to depict the dignity
of his subjects. He was born in Sioux City Iowa and raised in
a small home overlooking the Missouri River. He studied art and
writing at the Unviersity of Northern Iowa and taught high school
in Iowa. In the late 1960s, he moved to Colorado and opened Breckenridge
Galleries. After living briefly in Taos and Colorado, he opened
the Howell Gallery in Santa Fe. He was an accomplished photographer,
and writer of an art computer program.
Frank Howell was described as "having the remarkable
ability to make a person feel that, for a moment in time, they
were the most important person in his life. Understand that painting
is a wonderful kind of mirror that reflects the inner you, not
your external appearance. You will have a sense of a kind of timelessness,
a humanness the poetics in all things."
