The Harper·Howell Gallery
opened in October 2006 on the site previously occupied by Langford Gallery
and Gifts, adjacent to the Museum of Art on "G" street in Grants Pass, Oregon.
Although it operated on a "hybrid" co-operative model, presenting some artists
on a consignment basis and renting display space to others, The
Harper·Howell Gallery was privately owned and featured only juried artists
who met standards set by the panel of owners. Most of the artists were from
the local region of Southern Oregon/Northern California. While many were
experienced professionals and award winners and others beginning promising
careers, all were eager and committed artists whose work could stand on it's
own in any venue. We were proud to have them in ours.
From October 2006 to September 2008, The Harper·Howell Gallery continued
to show traditional styled art of the highest caliber and brought to the
Grants Pass gallery scene fine examples of contemporary art in a variety
of media. In addition to presenting over 30 outstanding artists on an ongoing
basis, the Harper·Howell Gallery each month presented an exhibit featuring
one or more artists by theme or media. Some monthly exhibits featured resident
artists while others presented outstanding guest artists not previously
associated the Gallery. We think this combination made the Harper-Howell
Gallery the most eclectic and possibly the best gallery in Southern Oregon
in it's time.
Sadly, it's time has passed, but the
artists still produce. We urge you to seek them out and buy their art.
Our Gallery may be closed, but art still lives in Grants Pass.
