August 2014 Artists on Display
On the Wall
Alba Scott August Artist on Display
“Each city and town has a history. As an artist, I find creating comes naturally wherever I am, be it in the city with people, or the peacefulness of the lakes and mountains. My drafting and technical background blend well as I try to capture dramatic line and color techniques. I am an oil painter, and work with a palette knife: this allows me powerful strokes and the illusion of a third dimension.
Locally, my art work is permanently displayed in area banks, public buildings, and area businesses. We are rich in history, and should treasure what we have. I try to show all of this in my paintings, the history with my feeling of design and color. My thoughts for paintings develop through my sketches, and with time, these have become a medium in themselves.” (A.Scott)
Some of the paintings in permanent collections include the: National Symphony Orchestra, Washington, D.C., Partners Trust Bank, Utica, Munson Williams Proctor Institute, Utica, Old Forge Art Center, Kirkland Town Library, New Hartford Library, Stanley Theatre, mezzanine lobby, and SUNY-IT – Peter Cayan Library. Alba’s special project was to design and select colors of the stain glass windows for the Chapel at Fordham University – Lincoln Center, New York, NY.
