About This Exhibition
Painter Howard Fussiner (1923-2006) was well known for his modern figurative work and especially his parade paintings. Born in New York, NY, he studied with renowned artists and teachers at New York University, the Art Students League, Cooper Union, and the Hans Hofmann School, before pursuing a long and successful teaching career at Morehouse College, Colby-Sawyer College, and Southern Connecticut State University. Fussiner drew great inspiration from his many summers spent in Deer Isle, Maine and from artist and Maine native Marsden Hartley, as is evident in this exhibition, which includes some of his Maine landscapes and seascapes. Fussiner’s work is in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, the Yale Art Gallery, and the Slater Museum. In Maine, the late artist continues to be represented by the Turtle Gallery in Deer Isle.
