Steve Tanis (1945–)


Pastel, charcoal, and graphite on paper


Steve Tanis studied art at the University of Cincinnati and the Cranbrook Academy of Art before launching a nearly forty-year career teaching at the Department of Art at the University of Delaware. Now professor emeritus, the artist has been featured in group and solo exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe, and is represented in over thirty corporate and museum collections. Bulbs may have been purchased from a show of the artist’s work exhibited in The Grand Gallery, a commercial art gallery run by the Biggs Museum’s founder Sewell C. Biggs.
