An example of fine art by STEPHEN BARTHOLOMEW



Stephen's artwork, whether it be painting or photography has almost always been about the landscape, usually Utah and the surrounding states. The mysterious almost otherworldly landscape of central and southern Utah and the Colorado plateau country is quite unique.  Much of his painting career has been spent capturing the sublime, weird, wonderful feeling of being there alone. Stephen makes his home in the mountains and deserts of Utah, which are more often than not the subjects of his work. Stephen enjoys working “en plein air” as well as in the studio. He finds the plein air work to be very rewarding as well as a great challenge. 
 Born in 1958, educated in public and private schools in Utah. While still in college Stephen’s work attracted the attention of art collectors, including The Springville Art Museum, The State of Utah, Southern Utah University, Brigham Young University, Salt Lake County. Now his work is represented in many corporate and private collections. Stephen's paintings have been featured in well over a hundred juried, curated and invitational exhibits.  He usually paints in oils, acrylics, watercolor, casein and gouache. Periodically he  produces a relief print.
A committed educator, Stephen taught art courses on and off for a decade at Brigham Young University and for served as an AP art teacher for
