JULY 6  Carol Scott,  Summertime Lacunae

A New Orleans native, she attended the University of New Orleans, where she earned a MFA, 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. Named Professor Emeritus by the University of Holy Cross in 2018, she has been the recipient of three endowed professorships. OLHCC commissioned her to create two mural size paintings, The Spirit of Our Lady, which are on permanent display.

In addition to painting in traditional media, she is one of a few artists who have elevated the colored pencil to a fine art form. In which her vibrant use of color conveys an emotional impact. She 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.” The Colored Pencil Society of America recognized her contribution by choosing her for the Outstanding Recognition Award for their 19th International Exhibition. Her solo show Crystallography in 2011 was a summation of three year’s work and explored complexities of the refraction of light through crystals. This Fall, 2024, she has been accepted in the prestigious Italian Biennale at Chianciano.
