Valoy Eaton paints quiet subjects with a universal message - a message of truth, life and light. He believes that
some of the most profound subjects are found in everyday occurrences when living close to nature.
His career has led him to be invited to participate in prominent gallery and museum shows across the U.S., including
a one-man retrospective show of 73 paintings at the Springville Art Museum in 1982. He was voted a lifetime member of
the National Academy of Western Art, and later served as chairman of the prestigious group. At their annual exhibition
in Oklahoma City he won several gold and silver medals for his landscapes. In 1988 he was appointed by the Governor to
serve on the Utah Arts Council, representing the visual arts for the state. In 1995 he was honored for his contribution
to the arts by the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce, by having a portrait of him hung in Abravanel Hall, home of the Utah
Symphony Orchestra. The Utah Governor's Mansion Artist Award was presented to him in 2002.
