December 2017 Resident On Display: Steve Stauffer
A lifelong Murray resident with family farms on both sides (the Vicchrillis and the Stauffers), artist Steve Stauffer has very deep roots in the area. He graduated from Murray High in 1971, married his high school sweetheart, served a 3-year enlistment in the army, and worked for 30+ years in a corporate job before beginning his life dream of becoming a working artist. He has studied with artists Jeff Hein, Rob Adamson, John Hughes and Brice Billings, and is a member of Plein Air Painters of Utah.
Stauffer has a passion for painting outdoors, as well as for figure and portrait painting in studio. He is often found in the alpine splendor of the Rocky Mountains, in its many National Parks, and in the Red Rock wonderlands. He recently participated in Zion National Park's Plein Air Invitational.
