DESCRIPTION

OUR LOVE OF JOHN T. SCOTT

March 25 - December 12, 2010

This personal look at the New Orleans artist’s life, art work, journey and private reflections examines both John Scott’s art practice and the people he influenced. Included are artist Bill Pajaud (who corresponded with Scott on napkins;) good friend and musical influence, Ellis Marsalis; artist Dewey Crumpler; photographer Lewis Wyatt, and other contemporaries who shared journeys together through notes, film clips, letters, intimate photographs and videos. The music he listened to in his studio resonates throughout the exhibition. This prolific artist worked in a wide variety of media and the exhibition includes lyrical sculptures, paintings and four by-six-foot woodcut blocks used to make large-scale prints.

This exhibition has been made possible through the generous support of Roosevelt and Paula Madison.
