Mark Haworth

B    i    o    g    r    a    p    h    y

1952 -

 

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 onto canvas. 

Growing up in Houston, Texas, Mark was encouraged by his family to artistic expression. Music and art became his main focus and Mark entered Sam Houston State University as a music major.  During this time, Mark met Glenn Bahm, a portrait artist who ignited his curiosity in painting and it took center-stage in his life.  He studied the style, color and technique of masters such as Julian Onderdonk, Isaac Levitan, George Inness, and Willard Metcalf.  These painters inspired his own artistic temperament and outlook leading him to change his major to art.  He graduated with a BFA degree in 1977. 

Inspired by the scenery and quality of the silvery light of the Texas Hill Country, Mark moved to Fredericksburg, Texas, in 1983 where he lived for 33 years. Today Mark calls Austin, Texas, his home since 2017.  For the past 40 years, he has participated in numerous one man and group gallery shows, as well as in museum exhibitions, throughout the country.

 

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.
