"While going through my Claude Howell files, I am amazed at all that I save, I framed a few at the time. These have been in my files for the last 29 years, with a recipe which appears in the same file from an exhibition I had for Claude in 1980 when Somerhill was then in the Strawvalley complex on the Durham Chapel Hill Blvd, Durham N.C.
I discovered a small cache of miniature Howell serigraphs that were published by Foxfire Fine Arts who also published the well known large size edition of the same image. which we also exhibited. The original plan was for them to appear in successive years until a complete suite of four was accomplished. It took longer than anticipated.
The larger version of the serigraphs was printed on 26.5 x 32 paper. These large pieces sell at auction in the $600 plus range.
The four acrylic paintings from which these serigraphs were modeled hang in the Cameron Museum in Wilmington, N.C."-Joe
