“Costa Maya,” a collection of artwork created by Steve Vance, a painter, illustrator, designer, and professor of fine arts at the University of Wisconsin at Platteville, will be on display in Ashford University’s Cortona Art Gallery from December 8, 2014 through January 27, 2015.

On Tuesday, Jan. 27, Vance will speak in several of Ashford’s art classes and will be the guest at an artist’s reception from 3-5 p.m. in the gallery.

Vance has exhibited paintings and pastel work throughout the United States and his work is collected by private individuals, public institutions, and non-profit organizations. Before arriving in Platteville, Vance taught painting and drawing in New York City. In addition to his fine art work and teaching, he also creates illustrations for clients such as GQ Magazine and he designs products for clients including Tiffany & Co.
