OCTOBER 1:  Carol Scott, The Golden Afternoon

Carol Scott’s show title The Golden Afternoon recalls the magic and beauty of the flowers in Walt Disney’s classic Alice in Wonderland film of 1951. She is known for her amazing colored pencil masterworks, which evoke a true sense of wonder in both technique and brilliance.

About her show she explains, It has been said, the difference between a flower and a weed is judgement. A friend of mine, Sandra Barr is an award-winning hibiscus grower. Sandra brought me a flat of hibiscus. I was inspired to use them as a starting point to create art. I felt a need to focus on pure beauty. This was my reaction to Covid, violence, the ugly noise and mean-spirited rhetoric we have been facing daily. I wanted to shift my eyes and thoughts beauty, truth, and goodness.

A New Orleans native, Carol attended the University of New Orleans, where she earned a Master’s degree in Fine Arts, graduating Phi Kappa Phi. She then worked as a teacher, a sculptress, married and raised her family while continuing to perfect artistic techniques in paint, metal sculpture, and colored pencils. Her vibrant use of color conveys an emotional impact to her work. She began to be noticed and was included in Treasures: 72 Colored Pencil Masterworks from Around the World. In Louisiana Art Walk, her work was referred to as “Points of Brilliance.” She is Professor Emeritus of Art at Our Lady of Holy Cross College
