    Art Brokerage: Patrick Howe American Artist: b. 1951. Patrick Howe was born into a family of nine children in Portland, OR, in 1951. He showed promise as an artist early on with an obsession for drawing. He got his first set of oil paints at eight years old when walking past a frame shop with his father. Patrick begged his father to go into the frame shop to look at a reproduction of Van Gogh’s “Wheatfield With Crows” that was visible through thee window. Patrick stared at it in wonder. Next to the print was a set of oil paints and brushes and immediately Patrick knew they were meant for him. The floor of his bedroom became his studio. Patrick went on to receive awards in high school for outstanding achievements in art, mechanical drafting and architecture. When he was 15 years old, Patrick had his first one person art exhibition in the lobby of US Bank, in Portland, OR. In the show he displayed portraits, square-rigger sailing ships and imaginative abstracts. The show was reviewed favorably in the Oregonian by columnist Doug Baker. In 1970 Patrick entered Pacific Northwest College of Art, where he received two fellowships. During this time Patrick also developed an interest is philosophy, theology, eastern religion, and psychology, which remain themes that he continues to work with in his artwork today. After graduating from Pacific Northwest College of Art, in 1974 , Patrick became the Head Preparator at the Portland Art Museum, which involved installing exhibitions in over twenty galleries and gave him an intimate knowledge of many of the worlds most famous works of art. In 1975 he completed an sculpture project for the Oregon Arts Commission. In 1976 he moved to Colorado and continued painting. In 1980 he was selected by the Colorado Council on the Arts and Humanities (CCAH) to conduct workshops and classes throughout the State. He was also selected to be a member of the CCAH Chautauqua Tour which included 40 artists of every discipline (musicians from the Denver Symphony Orchestra, actors from the Denver Theatre, dancers from the Denver Opera) and he was the only painter that year to be chosen out of thousands of visual artist applicants. He also lectured on the topic of art and the evolution of human consciousness at Colorado State University. Listings wanted.
