In Memory of Our Friend

Howard Wexler

We are very sad to announce the loss of Howard Wexler;

dear friend, artist and mentor.

Howard Wexler

August 14, 1934 - April 15, 2022

Join us for a

Celebration of Life for Howard

June 25, Saturday

2 PM to 4 PM

Howard Wexler was born in New York and grew up in the Washington, D.C. area. While there, he attended the Corcoran Art School (1950-52) and the Abbott Academy of Art (1952-53). He received his BA in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute, N.Y. and later attended the Academy Andre L’hote in Paris (1960-61).

While living in Paris, he learned of the painting techniques of the great masters, using their lost materials and methods as reconstituted by Jacques Maroger, the former director of the Louvre Laboratories, Paris.

Howard taught drawing and painting to the American colony in Paris and Normandy, France from 1961 - 1967 and in Stuttgart, Germany from 1967-1968. 

From 1958 - 1968, while living in Europe, he exhibited in France, England and Germany; most notably at the Pinacothequedes Pientres Modernes for seven years and at the Salon des Artistes Independents for four years in Paris. He also exhibited his paintings in the French provinces.

In 1968 he moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico where he and his colleague, Siegfried Hahn, continued instructing students in their Art Academy. An extensive article on their approach to drawing and painting appeared in the March, 1976 issue of American Artist magazine.

Howard conducted watercolor and oil painting workshops in Arizona, Colorado and throughout Texas and southern New Mexico. Through the auspices of the U..S.. Information Agency, he held painting workshops in Morroco (1986- 1989). From 1989 - 1994 he taught at the Art Masters Academy as well as the New Mexico Art League.

Howard’s paintings were exhibited extensively throughout the United States - New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Santa Fe, Tucson, Denver, Colorado Springs and other principal cities in the southwest. His landscape, floral and still-life paintings are in collections throughout the United States and Europe.

In lieu of sending flowers in memory of Howard, please donate to the continued programming of the classes and workshops in memory of Howard and his years of teaching here at the Art League.
