CLARK—The Skulski Art Gallery of the Polish Cultural Foundation in Clark will showcase photographic works by Roberta C. Scott from Sept. 11 through Oct. 2. An opening reception with the artist is planned for Friday, Sept. 11, from 8 – 10:30 p.m. The public is welcome, admission is free and light refreshments will be served.
Roberta C. Scott has been photographing for over 30 years and has won several awards. Scott has also presented over 50 one-woman shows in the United States, including the Horticultural Society of New York, and The New Jersey Audubon Society. Scott has been published in Garden Magazine and has been featured television for her exhibit of nature photographs. Her images are also a part of both private and permanent collections, including Rutgers University Art Library and the Staten Island Institute of Arts and Sciences.
Scott’s body of work, in its traditional point of view, encompasses most aspects of photography from landscapes to still-life. Be it the tiniest dew drop on a flower of the interior of a warmly lit room. Scott’s attention to detail and ability to control lighting is what sets this photographer apart from the rest. The desire to photograph all that her soul responds to has resulted in a portfolio of great magnitude in its computer graphics, as a means of seeking new ways to create compelling photo-based images.
Scott is a curator for the Fleetwood Museum of Art & Photographica, North Plainfield, and a member of the Somerset Art Association, Bedminster, The Nature Conservancy and the New Jersey Audubon Society.
Scott conducts photography workshops for community based organizations and has been an instructor for five years for the Becoming an Outdoors Woman Program sponsored by the New Jersey Division of Fish & Wildlife. Her artistic credo can be summed up in one line – “Beauty lies in your own backyard.”
The Polish Cultural Foundation, a non-profit organization, is located at 177 Broadway, Clark. The Skulski Gallery is open to the public Monday – Friday, 5-9 p.m.
