Moorehouse Howley is an artist specializing in
bronze using intricate levels and details. The
layers of figures, images, languages and numbers
create a sense of transformation to the viewer.
Howley’s work is full of spiraling images
pulling the viewer’s eye into a whirlwind
of objects, figures and text.
Howley has devoted much of her life to the study
of art. She began her education at New Paltz
State University where she did a summer study
in 1961 and most recently Howley took classes
in painting at Cornell University in 1993.
Howley has participated in several group exhibitions
including at the CSMA Gallery in Upstate New
York in 2003; George Waters Gallery at Elmira
