Mark Haworth’s study and effects of water, sky and land
combine to imbue these elemental impressions into the shapes, patterns and
textures of the Western landscapes that distinguish his paintings.
Spending most of his life in the heart of Texas, Mark captures a loosely
painted realism of light and mood, depicting a singular moment fixed in
timeless harmony. Motivated by the subtle nuances of rivers, canyons and
vistas, Mark paints with a conviction of emotion that he hopes to inspire in
those who see his work. Mark has kept this inspiration in the forefront
of his vision as he paints the tapestry of the ever changing Western landscape
In 1991 the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., invited Mark's participation in showing one of his paintings in their "Texas Festival" celebrating the Arts of Texas. He was selected for the top 100 in the nationally recognized 2005 "Arts for the Parks" and the top 200 in 2006. In 2007, Mark won the “Best of Show” and in 2009, the “Artists Choice” awards at the Briscoe Western Art Museum “Night of Artists” show in San Antonio, Texas. He was a ‘Guest Artist’ at the 2009 “Maynard Dixon Country” invitational show in Mt Carmel, Utah. Mark has been featured in American Artist, Art of the West, Southwest Art, and Western Art Collector magazines. His painting “El Mercado” was featured on the front cover of the March 2009 issue of American Artist magazine and the April 2012 cover of Western Art Collector featuring his painting "Desert Spring". Haworth is represented by InSight Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas, and Collectors Covey in Dallas, Texas.
