​San Juan Island Featured Chamber Member of the Month: Friday Harbor Art Studio

​Howie Rosenfeld’s Friday Harbor Art Studio has a new location at 321 Geneste Street. After 25 years as a retail business on Web Street, the Studio is now home based and by appointment. Howie has had retail art galleries here for over 30 years, providing custom picture framing and featuring his artwork. “I wanted to continue to provide picture framing.  A new Studio has been built next to the house, which is a short 2 1/2 blocks from the old location. Call, email or text and let me know when is convenient for you. So far it’s working well” he says.  360.378.7788, and 360.472.1053.
Howie’s artwork is also exhibited at Island Studios. What is his art? Howie became a scrimshaw artist way back when President Kennedy had scrimshaw on his desk. This also led him to be an early joiner of the whale conservation movement. He later switched to ‘scrimshawing’ copper, which is an engraver’s printmaking technique. Howie’s subjects reflect his experiences sailing on tall ships and from participation in whale research. 
Howie likes to be involved. A short list includes Whale Museum Director, Friday Harbor Fire Chief, Town Council and County Council. He is married to Carrie Lacher who took the photo of Howie working his ink during printmaking.
