Artist Talk: Sam Scott

May 11, 3:00 pm4:30 pm


Join us for an artist talk with Sam Scott on Saturday, May 11, at 3 pm on the occasion of his solo exhibition Sam Scott: Deep Nature. The exhibition features paintings and watercolors by one of the great living abstract painters, a widely acclaimed artist who has made Santa Fe his home for over fifty years.

In addition to recent watercolors and oil paintings, the exhibition features Scott’s iconic masterpiece quartet entitled The Four Tides, created in 1996 during his artist-in-residence at Texas A&M in Corpus Christi.

At his core, Scott is a nature painter. He made it his goal to paint nature’s major systems: the forest, the ocean, the mountains, and the desert. His colorful life allows him to experience deeply these subjects, from his expedition in the amazonian jungle to his fishing work in the fierce Alaskan seas, from his journeys in the Alps to his love of the Southwestern desert.

“In their passion and diversity, [Scott’s] paintings are a record of a life lived by the heart. They are Sam Scott’s act of giving back to life and, for us, evidence as well of one of America’s most articulate and lyrical painters after nature,” writes curator Jim Edwards.

Sam Scott has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally in his fifty-five-year career and was among the first artists to represent New Mexico at the Whitney Museum Biennial of Contemporary Art in New York City. His work is in many private and public collections. He is one of five artists in various media who have been chosen to represent the Capitol Art Collection as a “State Treasure”, in the Capitol Building of Santa Fe.
