lou stovall (1937 – 2023)


Lou Stovall (1937-2023) was born in Athens, GA in 1937 and grew up in Springfield, MA. He studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and Howard University. Since 1962, he had lived and worked in Washington, DC. His drawings and silkscreen prints have brought him grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Stern Family Fund. Under his direction, Workshop, Inc., founded in 1968, has grown from a small but active community studio into a professional printmaking facility. Stovall’s craft is that of a master printmaker but his passion is drawing. His own prints and drawings are part of numerous public and private collections throughout the world.
