Tommy Yow

Tommy Yow captures New Orleans with an eye to the landmark sights and sounds.  He presents a rich, almost photographic, melange with his own personal signature – those omnipresent canines with their own sly humor! Yow also identifies his nostalgic subjects with a wry graffiti commentary, which appears on everything from T-shirts to streetcar signage. He came to New Orleans in the late 1970’s after traveling the Arts and Crafts Show Circuit.  His art studies include Forsythe Institute, Winston Salem, North Carolina; New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts with Dell Weller and private study with Bob Graham.  Yow also studied in New York at the Art Students League and with Daniel Greene. He was one of those veteran artists hanging on the fence in Jackson Square, when art was still the main attraction.
