On Display August 3 - October 26

All in the Fam 2.png

Shirley and Lanny are happily married and together have 11 children and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, with number increasing rapidly, much to their joy. They own a store which is on the national historic register in beautiful Spring City, Utah. They have converted it into a gallery where they love to relax and to create. Kerry Soper is their son-in-law.

Shirley has loved art since childhood, but art took a backseat as she devoted her time to the raising of her wonderful children. As they began to leave home she returned to school and earned a degree in illustration. From then on her art education was self-directed as she chose workshops from artists whose work she admired. Shirley has received many awards for her paintings, which have been juried into many shows and featured in several books. She is an honorary member of the Utah Watercolor Society (where she is a former president) and the art organization Women Out West.

Lanny has enjoyed working with his hands since boyhood. Model airplanes were a passion as a youngster, metal model cars as an adult, and tall wooden ships as an older man. Throughout his working years, his creative energies mostly went into writing books. After retirement, Lanny began creating works of art on gourds, stone, wood, and bone. His carvings often reflect his teaching and writing interests in Asia and the Pacific, but he has a great love and respect for Native American art themes. Lanny's art work has been shown in museums and galleries throughout Utah.
