Utah State University Eastern-Blanding art professor Anthony Lott was named the National Parks Service’s Community Artist in the Park. This is the first time a San Juan County resident has been selected. One local artist is chosen each year, demonstrating their medium and how they find inspiration through National Parks.

“When I am in the studio, there are times when I am really active and aggressive and then the second half is very still and methodical,” said Lott. “There are those parallels with the environment where things change rapidly and then move really slow.”

Lott teaches drawing, painting, ceramics, art appreciation and emergency medical response. He lives in Bluff, Utah with his family, and regularly seeks inspiration at Arches and Canyonlands, Southeastern Utah’s National Parks.
