Sam Scott - United States
Art Brokerage: Sam Scott American Abstract Expressionist Artist: In 1965, after a brief period as a commercial fisherman in Kodiak, Alaska, Scott was offered a job teaching at Morgan State College in Baltimore, Md. Here his work was seen by Eugene Leak, the President of the Maryland Institute College of Art, and Scott was offered a full scholarship and teaching job there. Some of Scott's teachers during this time include: Clyfford Still, Philip Guston, David Hare, Grace Hartigan, and Savatore Scarpitta. During this period Scott also served his country on a classified mission to the Amazon Jungle working for the DOE and the State Department. As a result of this mission and others, all atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons by the United States was stopped. Scott graduated Summa Cum Laude at the head of his class and was awarded the Walters Art Museum Traveling Scholarship award to the outstanding graduate student. In 1969 Scott settled down in Santa Fe. In 1974 he was awarded the first one person show ever given to a living artist by the New Mexico Fine Arts Museum. In 1975 Scott was among the first artists to represent New Mexico at the Whitney Museum Biennial of Contemporary Art in New York City. In 1977 Scott was one of three artists elected to represent 110 artists at the City Council of Santa Fe, and he was elected at that time also to direct and hang the first Santa Fe Amory Show. In 1978 Scott accepted a teaching position at the University of Arizona and was subsequently invited to become a tenure track Professor of Painting and Drawing. Listings wanted.
