Renowned artist to support kids with disabilities
On Sunday, November 12, Variety — the Children’s Charity of Delaware Valley, will host an art show with renowned artist Howard N. Watson at Ristorante Toscano, 213 N. Broad Street, Lansdale. Howard Watson is a nationally recognized watercolorist and illustrator and has commissioned pieces for some very famous people.
President Jimmy Carter, Vice President Walter Mondale, singer Perry Como, Hall of Fame Coach Jack Ramsey, art collector Set Momjian, Sportscaster Tom Brookshier and President Bill Clinton have commissioned his paintings. He was the Artist in Residence at the White House during the Carter Administration. Watson, currently a resident of Wyncote, received his formal training at Pennsylvania State University, Temple’s Tyler School of Fine Art and the University School of the Arts, formerly the Museum School of Art.
The Variety Club is thrilled to be able to showcase a famous artist. Attendees will have the chance to purchase his orginal works from 1 to 4 p.m. with part of the proceeds benefitting the children we serve. Watson has even agreed to commission a special “Variety” piece of art featuring a moment from our camp.
Blue Bell resident Jack Ronalter recently participated in two world record-setting aerial formations with an international team of skydivers in Arizona.
