Brent Howard is a sculptor based out of the Woodlands, Texas. His recent work examines the alchemic notion of environment and materiality, along with their storied past and present state, to transmute the past, within the auratic present. Howard’s most recent work explores the essence of individual materiality and poiesis through alabaster, marble, metal, and fiberglass. He was core faculty in the Sculpture department at the Yale School of Art and taught at Skowhegan Artist Residency as well as longtime assistant to Louise Bourgeois.

Master Class: Advanced Sculpture, Studio and Critique
This advanced sculpture workshop is for students working in any 3-D medium and is designed to be a catalyst for making art within a broadly-defined language. Students work on individual projects while embarking on new approaches to processes that boost the forward momentum of their work. During this rigorous and in-depth workshop, participants ask themselves how work communicates within the context of contemporary art in a critique setting. Each student works at their own pace in the studio, sharing with a community of peers and pushing the content and form of their work. Students are asked to bring a digital portfolio of recent work to share with the class. Please submit your portfolio by January 27th for priority consideration. Portfolios will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis. Portfolios will be accepted on a rolling basis until February 10th, 2023. Submit your portfolio by January 27th for priority consideration. Instructions on how to submit your portfolio are as follows: Submit digital images of your work in one single PDF (as opposed to individual JPG attachments) via email directly to Sculpture Studio Coordinator Teddy Andriese at firstname.lastname@example.org The single PDF must be less than 10 MB to be considered.
