Altered States

Date/Time

Jan 9, 2013 to Feb 14, 2013

Description

When Scott Wright says, “I am most interested in painting the things that scare me,” he's not talking about the part where he hangs out into yawning space from airplane windows and door-less helicopters jockeying his six-foot frame and big, bulky camera to shoot pictures. What scares him is what he sees happening to his planet below.

The multi-media works that the Lancaster, PA, artist creates from his aerial photographs will be exhibited in his sharp, colorful and edgy show Altered States, which opens Friday, Jan. 9, 2013, in the Villanova University Art Gallery. A free public reception to meet the artist will take place from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 18. Refreshments will be served.

As an artist and a global warming bell sounder, Wright strives to create lasting impressions. “I want those who attend the Villanova exhibit to be astonished and touched by what they see. The world in a painting is a supercharged thing, untamed, always new and unexpected. If the show works to its fullest, the images will remain with those who see them for a long time afterward,” says Wright.

Wright's work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows across the United States and internationally. He is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Studio Art at Elizabethtown (PA) College and recently served as visiting artist-in-residence at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster. He has also taught at Purchase College, State University of New York (SUNY); Temple University's Tyler School of Art, Drexel University, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Samuel S. Fleisher Memorial.
