Hermes...is a remarkable work of art... Over the years he [Howard] has developed a remarkable series of anatomical drawings.... Howard's sculptures have content as well as exquisite form. All art is about art, even with a recognizable subject, and Howard clearly states the importance of Michelangelo to him. ARMOR engages our emotions as well as our sensory appreciation. The viewer's attention is riveted....

James Cooper, American Arts Quarterly, Spring 2005

Sabin Howard, a sculptor of immense talent, has created some of the last decade’s most substantive realistic sculpture. When viewing his works, visitors may be reminded of the time when Donatello and Rodin walked the earth...
The New York Times, April 28, 2002
Many sculptors revere the Italian Renaissance, but few are as effective as Sabin Howard (b. 1963) in channeling that era while remaining grounded in our own time. His large bronze figures constitute a paradox that succeeds brilliantly: Sumptuously crafted yet stream-lined in design, dynamic in composition yet serene in mood.
Fine Art Connoisseur, December, 2008
Sabin Howard is a sculptor whose work radiates a startling presence while finding its roots in the classical past. ...Howard mixes Roman gods with abstract forms and sees himself as a new kind of Renaissance figure—the artist-businessman with his own Medici clients. His bronze sculptures exert an outward pressure against their own metal skin, textured in pointillist marks. Formally and technically, the work is wonderfully compelling.

Time, memory, resilient determination, passion for antiquity, and an independent spirit have been the accompanying muses for the creative flow of life submerged in art of Sabin Howard. ...Sabin Howard has always been consumed with his adoration of the sculptures of past civilizations – our cultural heritage too often visually discarded as historicity, a thing to know, a page in the progress to where we now stand. But his brilliantly conceived heroic sculptures emerge from his years of preparation that have brought him to the enviable status as a solitary move onto the plinth of the important sculptors of the human body of today.
Grady Harp, Poets and Artists, August 2012
Formulating a mixture of the human psyche and the movement of the human body together with the technique reminiscent of Donatello and Michelangelo, Howard creates a statuesque celebration of both past and present in the realm of art and civilization. He is simply put a master at capturing life’s passing moments...
