    SMFA Traveling Fellow: “Ridley Howard: Fields and Stripes”

    Presented by at Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

    May 11 - October 27, 2013


    SMFA Traveling Fellow: “Ridley Howard: Fields and Stripes”

    Throughout his young career, Ridley Howard has explored how 21st-century painting might capture intense yet veiled emotion. “Ridley Howard: Fields and Stripes,” his first solo museum exhibition, showcases his delicately composed portraits, landscapes and abstractions that recall the cool psychology of paintings by Edward Hopper or Ed Ruscha; yet their soft-edged finish implies a painterly romanticism is at the core of his work. Howard graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA) in 1999 with a Master of Fine Arts degree, and in 2011 was awarded a prestigious Traveling Fellowship. Since 1894, this award has provided funds to support SMFA artists’ careers through independent work and travel, culminating in an exhibition.
