Sculptor Sabin Howard Gains More Acclaim

American Art Collector Profiles Him as Reenergizing Ancient Art of Sculpture; Praise Comes on Eve of New Collection

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2007 -- Prolific Artist Sabin Howard, 43, has created emotionally expressive sculptures of the human form for years, receiving accolades from a variety of audiences including The New York Times, International Designer Geoffrey Bradfield, and art collectors coast to coast. But American Art Collector will up the ante next month by featuring Howard as just one of a handful of 21st Century sculptors "leading the charge towards a new sensibility and interest in traditional sculpture."

In April, Howard's work will appear on the cover of the magazine's first section dedicated to sculpture, which had taken a backseat to other art forms, but is now enjoying a New Renaissance. Some of Howard's universally popular bronze creations, including: "Anger, Man, Eros," "Draped Figure," "Human Condition," and "Persistence," will be showcased in a multi-page spread.

Many pieces to appear in the magazine have been purchased by interior designers, CEOs and even Dr. Marc Lowenberg, a celebrity dentist and frequent Oprah guest. Beyond adorning mansions, one of Howard's statues is on display in the Time Warner Building in New York.

"Several clients have selected my statues to give their homes and gardens true personality, as well as a sense of tranquility that can help them recharge after a challenging day," said Howard. "I'm delighted to see the way my creations take on a life of their own in their new environments. And, of course, it's great to be applauded for your work by such a distinguished publication."

On The Eve Of... Aphrodite

The recognition from American Art Collector comes at an opportune time for Howard, as he prepares to debut an entirely new line, blending the classical mythology behind the Goddess of Love, Aphrodite, with the ultra-modern concept of a strong, yet loving woman. Howard is now making the finishing touches on the Aphrodite Collection, which will be available to art collectors, interior designers and others by June.

The first three pieces will feature the modern version of the Ancient Goddess in different forms -- full figure, torso and bust. The price range will be $24,000 to $145,000 and these collectibles promise to increase in value in the years to come.

Select images of Howard's current, museum-quality collection can be viewed and purchased online at www.sabinhoward.com. Many offerings range from $5,000 to $12,000, making these pieces accessible to serious collectors or others who love giving and receiving unique, high-end gifts. Expertly crafted, larger-than-life, full-figure statues can be purchased for $145,000.
