Of Jimmy for webBROWNWOOD – November 10, 2017 – Works by Howard Payne University’s David Harmon, professor of art and chair of the Department of Art, and his wife, Susan Harmon, adjunct instructor of art, are available for viewing in a variety of locations this month with exhibitions in Temple, Austin and Brownwood and an article published in the “International Journal of Arts and Humanities.”

The couple has a two-person exhibition of their paintings at the Saulsbury Gallery of the Cultural Activities Center in Temple, open to the public through November 15. In conjunction with the Temple exhibition, the couple recently held a combination lecture and workshop in watercolor with 35 people in attendance.

The Harmons’ works are also featured in a group exhibition at the Austin Artists Gallery throughout the month of November.

The paintings of Susan Harmon are on exhibit in HPU’s Dorothy and Wendell Mayes Art Gallery inside the university’s Doakie Day Art Center through December 1. The exhibition consists of large-format abstract paintings based on her study of tragic events during the 21st century. She has extensively exhibited her work both domestically and internationally with recent gallery and museum exhibitions in Asia and Europe. HPU’s gallery hours are Monday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

“Her work is full of expressive painterly marks with the goal of providing healing amidst tragic circumstances,” said David Harmon.
