Scott Exhibit at RU Art Gallery

“A CITY SQUARE”: This oil on canvas by Bill Scott is part of Rider University’s exhibit featuring a 40-year survey of the artist’s work, which runs through October 29. An artist’s talk is October 5 at 7 p.m.

The Rider University Art Gallery presents “Bill Scott: The Landscape in a Still Life Paintings, Pastels, Prints, and Watercolors, 1977-2017” through October 29. An artist’s talk is Thursday, October 5 at 7 p.m.

The exhibit includes still life and figure compositions made before Scott’s painting veered toward abstraction. His recent abstractions include references to garden and landscape imagery: flowers, foliage, and tree branches.

Raised in Haverford, Pa., Bill Scott studied painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA). After graduating from PAFA, he worked informally with abstract painter Joan Mitchell at her home in Vétheuil, France. Since 1999, he has made intaglio prints with the C. R. Ettinger Studio.

The Rider University Art Gallery is located in the Bart Luedeke Center on Rider University’s campus, 2038 Lawrenceville Road, Lawrenceville. It is open Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, visit www.rider.edu/arts.
