For almost fifty years he has been specializing in regional landscapes and other genre throughout the United States. Working in oil, he has also painted in Canada, Spain, Greece, and the Middle East. Since 1964 Sather's paintings and photography has appeared in numerous regional and national juried exhibitions as well as galleries from San Francisco to New York. During most of this period he supported himself as an airline pilot when he joined TWA as a B-727 Flight Engineer in 1967 until his retirement from UPS as a B-747 Captain in 2000. Now he has returned to photography and painting full-time and continues this work in Louisville, Kentucky. Sather and his family and their riverdog, Jack, have lived in Louisville since 1989.
