    John Dowell (BFA '63)

    • John E. Dowell, Jr., a nationally recognized artist, captures the pulse of cities and agricultural landscapes of America in his large-scale photographs. Working primarily from sunset until dawn, he focuses on the surface of buildings, the reflections of their exteriors and, quietly, their interior spaces. Illuminating the unseen, he brings awareness to a single moment.

      Dowell’s fine art prints, paintings and photographs have been featured in more than 50 one-person exhibitions, and represented in the permanent collections of 70 museum and public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

    Rochelle Toner

    • Rochelle Toner, Professor and Dean Emerita, is a nationally known printmaker and artist who works on paper. Toner served as the Dean of Tyler from 1989-2002.

      Toner’s prints, watercolor drawings and collages reflect her lifelong fascination with the dynamics of nature and human interaction.  The images are abstractly referential, suggesting sources and physical processes, without the intrusion of the literal. Toner’s prints and works on paper have been exhibited widely and are held in various museum and private collections, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.  Her most recent major exhibition was a career overview at the Philadelphia Print Center in 2018.
