Ronald Fowler graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute
in New York City, beginning his career as a book illustrator
with figurative work for several major publishers. He has
over 30 books and book jackets to his credit — including
projects as diverse as school textbooks for Watson Guptil
to illustrations for The Reader’s Digest. He has also produced
limited edition, special event, and theatrical posters.
In the early eighties, after so many
years in New York, Ron visited Provincetown, Massachusetts,
and never went home! Like so many artists before him, Fowler
was inspired by the light of Cape Cod and he began to explore
the possibilities of realist landscape and seascape in oil.
At the same time, Fowler also continues
to do figurative drawing, painting and commissions and produces
appealing ... delicately allusive” (New York Times)
color-based abstractions. He was one of the earliest artists
profiled in the book New American
has shown his abstractions in the Laguna Beach Gallery on
the West Coast, in the Chuck Levitan Gallery in New York
City, and in juried shows around the country.
