Frank Owen (b. 1939) received both a BA and a MS degree in art from the University of California at Davis in the late 1960s. He has since established a career as a painter and educator in fine arts. Owen’s paintings and works on paper feature carefully constructed compositions rich in both color and texture, often expressing the natural splendor of the Adirondack Mountains in abstraction. His work is represented in numerous museum and public collections including the Boca Raton Museum of Art, The Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Des Moines Art Center, the Chazen Museum of Art, the Flint Institute of Arts, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, the St. Louis Art Museum, and Yale University. Owen received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1978 and 1989. In 2010 he received a grant from the Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation in recognition of a lifetime of creative achievement.
