The EACC Gallery presents Carl Scott Paintings of the South, an exhibition by Mid-South artist Carl Scott. The exhibit will run through Friday, February 24th. The public is invited to meet the artist in the Gallery on Saturday, February 4th at 6:30 p.m. before the Vicki Lawrence and Mama: A Two Woman Show performance in the EACC Fine Arts Center.
Artist Carl Scott decided early in life to study art. Throughout his life, Scott’s art has persistently evolved as he has continually learned to work with different mediums. Art has been his passion for many years. “The viewer is drawn to my work by constantly discovering new details and aspects with every glance. Almost simultaneously, my work evokes feelings of familiarity and emotional connection,” Scott explains.
A native of Forrest City and former EACC student, Scott graduated from the Memphis College of Art with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1985. In 1984, he was recognized as the Arkansas Arts Council’s Artist of the Year and was also awarded Memphis College of Art’s Printmaking Core Award in 1984 and the Portfolio Award in 1982. In addition, Scott served as the artist for Federal Express in Memphis from 1996-2012.
Scott’s artwork has been featured in various collections, galleries, convention centers, hotels, and businesses throughout the Mid-South, including Federal Express’ Aviation Gallery, Memphis’ Crown Plaza Hotel, Memphis College of Art, the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, Parrish’s Main Street Gallery, Crittenden Arts Council Gallery, Albert Fine Art Gallery, Beale Street Art Gallery, Arkansas State University, Urban Art Commission, Ballard Recording Studio, Memphis’ Cook Convention Center, and more.
In addition to exhibiting and commissioning artwork throughout the Mid-South, artist Carl Scott has also served on various art commissions, boards, and committees. He served on the Board of Directors for the Crittenden Arts Council, served as Board Commissioner of the Design Review Committee for West Memphis, served on the Design Committee for Main Street West Memphis, and currently serves as an artist with the Urban Art Commission in Memphis.
