‘Remembrance’ at Manchester features vibrant paintings by Jim Scott

Van Gogh Reflects on Vermeer, acrylic, Jim ScottArtist Jim Scott presents an exhibition of paintings through Sept. 11 in Gallery G at the North Manchester campus of Manchester University.

The vibrant palette of “Remembrance” is inspired by his travels to the Caribbean Islands and hiking trips in state parks.

Also included in the show are large acrylic works in the style of “fantasy realism,” taking the old Masters’ subject matter and reworking it in a contemporary form.

The artist’s reception is 5-7 p.m. Friday, April 21, in the gallery that is on the upper level of the Jo Young Switzer Center on East Street. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.

Gallery G hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and noon to 3 p.m. Sundays when classes are in session. Appointments are available. For more information, contact Ejenobo Oke, MU director of galleries, at 260-982-5334 or eroke@manchester.edu. 

The St. Louis, Mo., native began at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts in 1962 and after graduating was art director in advertising at Marshall Fields for 15 years, while continuing to take classes. Pursuing his art career, he exhibited in several galleries in the Chicago area.

In 1976, Scott moved to Rochester, Ind., but continued to exhibit in Chicago and other Midwestern cities.
