Artist Bio: Sterling Boyd Strauser (1907–1995), whose German name means “one who binds the flowers,” was born in Bloomsburg, PA in 1907, and later moved to East Stroudsburg, PA, with his wife, Dorothy.

Strauser’s works have been exhibited at: the Lyzon Gallery, Nashville, Tenn.; the Reading Public Museum, Reading, Pa.; and Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn. His paintings are included in the permanent collections of the American Museum in Bath, England; the Allentown Art Museum, Allentown, Pa.; Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pa.; Everhart Museum, Scranton, Pa.; Cheekwood Museum and Vanderbilt University, both in Nashville, Tenn.; Maier Museum of Art, Lynchburg, Va.; The Sterling Strauser Gallery at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania; and numerous private and corporate collections.

In addition to his painting, Strauser served as a teacher and principal of the grade school in Mount Pocono from 1928 to 1929. He also worked at the International Boiler Works in East Stroudsburg where he began as a shipping clerk in 1930 and retired as company secretary in 1962. Strauser and his wife both discovered and encouraged many other artists, including the self-taught artist Jack Savitsky. Dorothy was also an artist, creating cloth hooked paintings and floral watercolors.
