Howard Kaneg

Studied at Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program

California Institute of the Arts, Valencia, CA

"The forms outside become the structure of the painting but not it's essence.  Art is about exploration.  The further away from what you know, that's when you create art."

Gary Hughes

B.A History

MFA Drawing, University of Arizona

"I use every method that I believe will help me produce the image.  Paint and brushes, computer, photos, scans, projector, and engineering plotters are used.  Doing so many art jobs gave me a second set of skills and comfort with scale."
