About Edward M. Gowen

Edward M. Gowen has been drawing and painting all of his life. He has studied with portrait masters John Howard Sanden, Clayton Beck, and Michael Shane Neal, as well as celebrated plein air landscape painter Kevin Macpherson. In Ed’s paintings, he manages to establish the effect of space and has a technique that wields the power to suggest mood—some of his works shining with the brightness of life while others brood with the depth of shadow. His paintings have been seen from California to New York City in shows such as the Salmagundi Club, Salon International, Oil Painter’s of America, Hilton Head Art League, and the National Oil and Acrylic Painter’s Society. His works hang in corporate and private collections and have been commended with many awards and publications. Ed has had several solo and group shows, including one in New York City’s Soho District in 1999.
