The inherent challenge of any contemporary African-American painter or sculptor, is the task of reconciling western values with their African roots. The work of Dr. John T. Scott brings these two realms together with poetic eloquence. His insightful use of line and patterning infuse the work with a vigorous enthusiasm. Dr. Scott is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including a 1992 John D. MacArthur Fellowship. He has also been a Professor of Fine arts at Xavier University since 1965.
