The Everson Museum of Art is presenting Tim Scott: The Sixties - When Colour was Sculpture Jan. 30 - April 11, 2010. Scott's monumental, colorful, steel sculptures will be one view, along with recent ceramic sculptures from his House of Clay series.
"Because of their dramatic scale, which require large spaces to be viewed properly, these works have not been exhibited in decades," said Steven Kern, Everson Museum of Art Director. "The Everson's I.M. Pei galleries provide a stunning space to view Scott's sculptures in-the-round, an experience like no other."
The large-scale sculptures made of painted steel and acrylic sheeting were created in the late 1960s, a time when painters and sculptors alike celebrated color as form and subject. Scott, who had the advantage of an architectural training, transformed new materials such as painted steel, plastic and fiberglass into large-scale constructions that seemed to float with weightlessness.
Carefully coordinated color schemes were selected for the plastic sheets which were then placed at varying angles that harmonized perfectly with the negative space around them.
An Opening Night Reception will be held Jan. 29, 5:30 - 8 p.m. Guests are invited to enjoy a mix of songs from the 60s provided by DJ Brian Oddo, light hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar before previewing the exhibition. The Opening Night Reception is free for Everson members, $10 non-members.
All are invited to interact with the artist, and join Tim Scott for a Gallery Walk at the Everson Museum of Art on Sunday, January 30 at 2 p.m.
The Gallery Walk is free an open to the public.
