Gordon Fowler

Gordon Fowler 

Gordon Fowler is a former high school quarterback and a lapsed rock-and-roll musician. As a Marine combat correspondent in Vietnam Cross of Gallantry. (The character named “Cowboy” in Stanley Kubrick’s Vietnam War movie, “Full Metal Jacket,” is based on Fowler.) He built his father’s small business-Wick Fowler’s Two-Alarm chili-into a multi-million-dollar national company. He opened La Zona Rosa, the popular Austin restaurant and nightclub made semi-famous in 1995 by the #1 country hit song ‘Amy’s Back in Austin”. He’s married to the popular rhythm-and-blues musician and recording artist Marcia Ball. And though it all, for more than three decades, Gordon Fowler has been a painter. 

Galleries and Museums Exhibited
Santa Fe/ Kennebunkport/throughout Texas
Awards: West Texas Watercolor Society, Kentucky Watercolor Society, Louisiana Watercolor Society, Waterloo Watercolor Group 

Commissions:
Dillard’s Department Stores and the Austin Museum of Art Commemorative watercolor to mark the Austin Museum of Art fundraiser/mall opening. 

Montgomery Museum of Fine Art “Stonehouse Farm” oil painting for a museum fundraiser John Sharp “Placedo Hall, circa 1958” 

Today, Gordon Fowler teaches painting at the Austin Museum of Art and paints in the Southwestern U.S., in Mexico and in Europe. 

Artist Comments:
Sometimes I feel I should price my work by the mile because in making it I’ve driven literally thousands of miles crisscrossing Texas, looking for the perfect set-up, passing dozens of good spots along the way.
You don’t have to look hard to find places of great beauty here in Texas, and I get to go looking more than anyone deserves. The resulting paintings are sort of a back roads travelogue on canvas.

Danny Jones Workshop

Danny Jones Workshop Oct 28th – 30th!

Danny Jones Art Workshop

Danny Jones Workshop

The Danny Jones Art Workshop is different from any other art workshop that you may have taken. “Having been an art teacher for 35 years, I know that it is important to build on each workshop participant’s own artistic abilities. I help them to progress at their own pace. For everyone to achieve the best of their artistic abilities, I constantly monitor and give each participant’s work constructive, individual attention.”

Each person is at a different place in their artistic search, therefore, I work with each participant individually by continually walking around monitoring each person’s work.  Participants may work with any medium they choose; watercolor, oils, pencils, pastels, etc.  (It can be a great time to try something you’ve never tried before and/or +a time to mix media.) Each artist will need to choose the subject matter for their workshop painting or drawing projects – person, animal, landscape, still life, up to you. Bring the photographs (quite a few) that you want to work from, preferably photos that you took instead of magazine photos.  Painters may want to have their subjects drawn on their paper/canvas before the workshop begins to save time. Should a participant feel uncomfortable about his or her drawing skills, he/she may choose to wait until the workshop begins to get my verbal help.

Each day begins with a “mini-lesson” on topics such as: drawing skills, shading, drawing the human body, portraits or composition.  The participants spend the remainder of class time working at their own pace while I continue to collaborate with each person about his or her work.  Should you have questions, please call: 817.707.9473 or email: joneswisener@hotmail.com
