They became artists. Their works of sculpture and paintings will be on exhibit at Queens College's Klapper Hall Gallery starting from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, and then Monday, Jan. 29, through Thursday, Feb. 1, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Horowitz, who had been an executive of Manhattan-based TC Entertainment and oversaw promotions and advertising for several TV productions - including "The Muppet Show" - had hired artists for a variety of company projects.

"Now, I'm hiring myself to be the artist," he said. "I must acknowledge, I never paid artists enough. It's hard work - harder than I thought."

Honig said that once he put down his dentist's drill and took up a paintbrush, art became "my alternative to life on the golf courses of Florida."

Instead, he paints landscapes and seascapes, mainly of Maine. His sculptures include a rendition of a porpoise.

Horowitz' work includes paintings not as tranquil as his friend's - he has depicted the conditions of war-torn Sierra Leone and Kosovo.

But he also has painted his grandchildren, and has done a few self-portraits.

For more information on the free exhibit, call Queens College at 718-997-5000.
