Perri Howard’s work is a charting or mapping of sites and situations, expressed through painting, drawing, installation, and sound. Working in the context of extreme environments is an essential aspect of her creative practice. It drives her curiosity to seek a deeper sense of place, beyond the dichotomy of near and far. This work is not dictated by a particular medium, but is concept-driven and site responsive, relating to the “there-ness” of everything. Originally from Marblehead, Massachusetts, she received her BA from The Evergreen State College, BFA from the University of Washington, and MFA in Printmaking from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her work is represented by the Seattle Art Museum Gallery. Honors include a McMillen Fellowship, Artist Trust Fellowship, two Artist Trust GAP awards, Seattle City Artist Grant, and multiple 4Culture Special Projects Grants. Her art has a global reach through exhibitions and sound installations located in Italy, Portugal, Brazil, Canada, and in South India as a Fulbright Scholar. In addition to the studio work, she has completed dozens of permanent and temporary public art projects in the Pacific Northwest. Collaborating with architects, planners, and communities has expanded the reach of her work, connecting with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Perri’s studio works and public projects have been featured in the following publications: The Stranger, Sculpture Magazine, Cottage Living, American Surveyor, The Seattle Times, XYHT, and Crosscut Media.
