ST. GEORGE — Two distinctly different and talented artists whose works are currently on display at Arrowhead Gallery will be featured at an artists reception Friday from 5-7 p.m. at the gallery, located at 68 E. Tabernacle in St. George.
The public is invited to come meet artists Steve Brough and Jo Campbell, view their artwork and enjoy delicious refreshments.
According to a press release issued by Jo Ann Merrill of Arrowhead Gallery, Brough’s love for landscapes developed early when his family vacations would take him across country from Minnesota to Utah.
Brough would stare out the car window for hours, the release stated, mesmerized by miles of open outstretched land.
Years later, while studying economics at Brigham Young University, Brough discovered Southern Utah for the first time, and his love for landscape photography began.
He took a community education course and began to read every publication on photography.
Brough is currently a member of the Southern Utah Art Guild, and his photographs are displayed in the Arrowhead Gallery.
He has also exhibited his work in the annual Zions Bank Art Show in Salt Lake City as well as the St. George Parade of Homes. His work is displayed in various business offices in both St. George and Salt Lake City.
As a child, Campbell was enthralled with the rainbows on the floor that were created by the beveled windows in her home. Glass has always been important in her life as an artist.
Campbell has a bachelor’s degree in fine art and a master’s degree from Parson’s School of Design in New York City. She has taught art in elementary and secondary schools and at the university level, in addition to continuing education courses.
Campbell has volunteered in the arts by creating arts councils, building art centers, designing playgrounds for children, serving as the governor-appointed Wyoming Arts Commission chair, serving on the board of the Western States Arts Commission and serving on National Endowment for the Arts panels.
Campbell was also a recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Oregon Trail Chapel windows commission. She now focuses on the joy of creating art.
