Artist Stephanie Stouffer brings her ‘Holiday Legacy’ to Brandon
Stephanie Stouffer has a special holiday exhibit of her original paintings and commercial products on view at The Compass Music and Arts Center in Brandon. The show “Holiday Legacy” opened Nov. 17 and will run through Dec. 31.
During her 35-year career, Stouffer created over 430 paintings for the international card company Caspari, of which approximately 75 percent were used for their boxed holiday cards and related products like napkins, wrapping paper, and plates. Chances are you’ve seen, if not purchased, one of her designs before.
Stouffer describes her portrayal of Santa as a “nostalgic, red robed character with a flamboyant mustache.” He is often shown interacting in a loving way with animals, a signature element in Stouffer’s designs.
My paintings of animals from all over the world, grouped together, are symbols that celebrate living together in a community, peace, and are a celebration for life,” she said.
Come meet Stouffer on Wednesday, Dec. 6, at 2 p.m., while you view the exhibit. This meet-and-greet coincides with Brandon’s Moonlight Madness event, so visitors will also be able to shop for the holidays, take advantage of special deals, get a fabulous meal provided by SoundBite’s chef Vicky Regia, and more.
