Albumn Cover Paintings of Howie Green

Opening reception at MassBay Community College
Sunday, September 28th


On Sunday, September 28th, MassBay Community College will hold an opening reception of The Album Cover Paintings of Howie Green. Howie’s album cover paintings celebrate the golden era of album cover design as well as the excitement and energy of six decades of music and the artists who created it.

Howie’s album cover paintings have graced the covers of numerous CD releases by recording artist’s including legendary rapper Biggie Smalls, Catahoula, MoRebo and American Idol finalist Chris Sligh.

The Art Show is a selection of Howie’s record album cover paintings as featured in his art book and also features saxophonist Jenny Connors playing tunes from the various albums on display.

His album cover paintings are in numerous private collections around the world from Croatia to Australia to Tokyo to New York City and are also in several large public installations in Delray Beach and Jacksonville, Florida.

Howie came to international attention as a painter and artist with the publication of his book Jazz Fish Zen: Adventures in Mamboland. His colorful and whimsical artwork has been featured in over 40 group and solo shows and has adorned over 30 public and private murals.

Boston-based since the early 1970s, Howie has a unique artist's eye for the colorful fun that springs out of our popular culture. Images from comics, celebrities, movies, TV and various other flotsam and jetsam that washes up on the rocky shores of our popular media all make their way into Howie's colorful and fun Pop Art creations.

Using a pop-fauvist color palette and an eclectic, upbeat, approach to his subject matter, Howie says a lot of people tell him that they love "his colors". Howie comments "My colors? They don't belong to me. Colors are out there floating around. I just happen to use them all!"

The Reception is from Noon to 3:00 PM at MassBay Community College, 50 Oakland Street in Wellesley, Massachusetts.
Light Refreshments will be served.
