Artist Howard Hitchcock


HOWARD HITCHCOCK is your typical artist...he's ahead of his time. Works that were created over a decade ago now ring true in today's environment. A master in both metals and canvas, Hitchcock's works sometimes employ humor, satire, and even commentary.


During his thirty-two years in the Art Department at California State University, Long Beach, Howard focused on creating sculpture. Initially using wood and clay, he discovered in 1964 the ceramic shell mold process for industrial casting, which he developed into his own unique approach to casting sculpture, later detailed in his book Out of the Fiery Furnace: Casting Sculpture in Ceramic Shell Molds (William Kaufmann, Inc., 1985). For nearly two decades he taught a course in bronze casting, and cast all of his own sculpture on campus. His stainless steel sculpture “Giving fir Life” was installed in 1987 in front of the American Cancer Society office in Long Beach. Howard has exhibited throughout the U.S., Mexico and Japan. He is included in Who’s Who in American Art and was selected as Huntington Beach “Artist of the Year” in 1989. His bronzes address visually, often with wit and ambiguity, the human condition--relationships and stresses that most of us experience at some time in our lives.


Born 1927, Ava, Missouri, Howard Hitchcock resides in Huntington Beach, where he creates many of his new paintings and sculptures. The talented artist doesn't seem to be slowing down. So prolific is this master, Anderson Gallery generally holds one or two new exhibits of his work annually.
