Requiescat in pace, Steven Soffer, Shreveport artist and art instructor

Philadelphia-educated artist Steven Louis Soffer was active as an artist and art instructor in Shreveport for some 15 years. He died on October 14, 2013, says his Times obituary.

A graduate of Arcadia University in Glenside, PA, he worked in paint and ceramics. He also had a considerable independent edge to his work and discussions of art.

In his artist statement at the NW La Artists Directory he said of his clay sculpture, "It’s as if I am connecting pieces of a cosmic puzzle; one part artist, scientist, philosopher, mathematician, together, and seeing where the journey takes me."
