, $3,500

Maury Lapp was born in Chicago in 1925 and received both his Bachelor's and Masters of Fine Arts from the Art Institute of Chicago. After studies abroad, he settled in Santa Rosa, teaching art at Santa Rosa Junior College until his retirement in 1991. Yet in retirement, he continued teaching part-time and remained disciplined, painting every day.

Maury participated in Sonoma County's "Art at the Source" and "Art Trails" and was supportive of Sonoma County artists and their art. Below is a memorial video of Maury, "Art is long, Life is Short." It includes Maury discussing his ideas of art along with photos of him working in his studio and beyond.

His list of solo exhibitions include the Oakland Museum, the Memorial Union Gallery at UC Davis, the Stevenson College Gallery at UC Santa Cruz, the Walnut Creek Art Center, and San Francisco's Legion of Honor. His work was included in group exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Whitney Museum in New York, the Denver Art Museum, SFMOMA, the Santa Barbara Museum of Arts, the Oakland Museum, and SF's Legion of Honor.
