John Mcdowell

John McDowell began exhibiting his artwork in 2021 and has since realized increasing success. Apart from participating in numerous group shows in various venues in south-central Pennsylvania, his solo exhibit, “Abstracts by John McDowell,” has had month-long showings at, among others, an entire floor of the Coyle Free Library in Chambersburg (April & again December, 2022) and in the entrance hallway of the Chambersburg Hospital (January 2023) . Two of his artworks - “Sunset Over Sumatra” & “Nebulae” - were chosen for publication by an online international arts magazines (August 22 & February 2023) . Most recently, four of his pieces were chosen as part of the digital exhibit at Booth 107 at Art Expo New York 2023, where they will be offered as large-scale (up to 59" x 43") digitally-altered museum quality giclée canvas prints. An expanded version of the exhibit “Abstracts by John McDowell” will be featured at the Cofrin Arts Gallery of the Burgin Arts Center in Mercersburg, PA., from the beginning of June to the end of August, 2023.

A graduate of Hampshire College, John is a self-taught graphic artist, who began his career as a rock drummer in his early 20s, touring fraternity houses and clubs with his band in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. He later worked on Wall Street where he created his own firm in 1985. In the early 1990s, he was injured in a car accident and found he could no longer work. As a result, he left New York City and retired in his hometown of Chambersburg, PA., where he continues to create his art.
