San Francisco, CA USA

Opening Reception Thursday, March 11th from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.

Gallery Paule Anglim is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Mildred Howard.

Howard will present sculptural work exploring the globe, the iconic image of the world. The artist employs the common house-hold object, the spinning spherical map, as her ready-made. As a scaled-down model, it serves to contain and describe our under-standing of peoples, borders, governments and social constructs.

For over thirty years, Howard has combined folk imagery, architecture and photography in an assemblage technique which questions norms yet pays homage to simple traditions.

Mildred Howard has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Adeline Kent Award from the San Francisco Art Institute, the Joan Mitchell Foundation and a fellow-ship from the California Arts Council. Her work has been exhibited internationally including recent shows in Berlin, Cairo, and Bath, England. Large scale installations have been mounted at Creative Time in New York, in SITE San Diego, the National Museum of Women in the Arts and the New Museum in New York. Public commissions and installa-tions were executed for the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington, the City of Oakland, the San Francisco Arts Commission and International Airport, and the San Jose Museum of Art.

Mildred Howard’s works are represented in the collections of SFMoMA, the DeYoung Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Wadsworth Atheneum, the Museum of Glass and Contemporary Art, Tacoma, the Oakland Museum, the Palm Springs Museum and the San Jose Museum of Art.
