Tim Langenderfer

MARIA STEIN, Ohio (May 28, 2020) – Tim Langenderfer has been named as the Maria Stein Shrine 10th Annual Art Show & Sale judge. After earning a BFA from Ohio University in 1984, Tim began his artistic career as an illustrator at a Dayton commercial art studio. In 1989, he began his freelance career creating illustration art for clients such as Anheuser Busch, Bath and Body Works, Coca-Cola, Dell, IBM, Procter & Gamble, and Delta Airlines. Under the pseudonym, Tim Stout, he illustrated for the Chicago Tribune, Forbes, Golf Magazine, and other national publications.

As an adjunct professor at the University of Dayton for over twenty years, Tim taught illustration, drawing, advanced figure drawing and designed a new pilot class, Anatomy Drawing for Pre-Med Students. Tim began a second career teaching at Lehman Catholic High School in Sidney, Ohio. “Seeing the excitement expressed by a student who has developed a skill that they previously weren’t sure of has been fulfilling in a way I had not imagined” he stated.

Tim is the current artist-in-residence at the Museum of Spiritual Art in Franklin, Ohio and is the founding Director of the MOSA Academy of Art. The Academy provides skilled-based art instruction for high school students, art educators and adults.

Tim’s work is included in the collections of The Athenaeum of Ohio, Coca-Cola Co., Christendom College, The Diocese of Covington, General Electric, The Museum of Spiritual Art, and the University of Dayton.
