Steve worked in different school districts, including Southern Tioga. From 2001 to 2008, Steve also served as an adjunct professor at Mansfield University teaching Drawing and Water Base Media. Both Rita and Steve are now retired from teaching full time and together they have continued to create and exhibit their artwork professionally.
The Bowers visited Egypt and have both been influenced by what they discovered there. These “Inspired by Egypt” artworks can be viewed in an exhibition at the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center at 134 Main Street, Wellsboro from October 8th through Dickens of a Christmas weekend. The art is a combination of Rita and Steve’s individual styles in media including sculpture, watercolor, drawings, and mixed media monotypes. The Bowers will be offering a monotype workshop at the Gmeiner Art &Cultural Center and also at their “studio-classroom” at the Pajama Factory in Williamsport, Pa.
