Found Info From Obituary
Frank Nofer (1930 - 2001) was a celebrated graphic artist and watercolorist who designed a Philadelphia logo for the American Bicentennial.

His book, How to Make Watercolor Work for You, was published in 1991.

His graphic design of Philadelphia, depicting notable figures and landmarks, was adopted by Mayor Frank Rizzo for the city's celebration of the Bicentennial.

Mr. Nofer was born in Philadelphia, graduated from Olney High School in 1947, and graduated in 1951 from what is now the University of the Arts, where he majored in illustration on a full scholarship. He also studied at the Charles Morris Price School of Advertising, at the University of Pennsylvania, and privately with several artists.

He was past president of the Whitemarsh Community Art Center, where he lectured on watercolor techniques and served as a juror for exhibitions.

He served on the boards of the Art Directors Club and the Artists Guild, and he was a member of the American, Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Watercolor Societies.

His representational watercolors are included in prominent private and corporate collections. In 1995, the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College honored him with a one-man retrospective exhibition.

I read a book on watercolors that Frank wrote quite a few years back. I think he was a member of a pennsylvania watercolor group. Excellent art!

I saw his lovely watercolor of a young boy of about five digging in the sand at the beach for a sand crab, aptly named where'd that sand crab go?.
