ARTcetera Boston 2015

I am very honored to announce that one of my pieces have been accepted at ARTcetera Boston 2015. The bi-annual event raises funds through auctioned art for the AIDS Action Committee. I was lucky enough to go to the last ARTectera in 2013 (thank you to the Mannes!) and was blown away by the event, we had so much fun!

ps- I SWEAR this is Randy and I walking in to the 2013 event… pointing to the NECR lightboxes in my blue coat that I know I wore… serendipity!

My work that will be included, “The Wave Falters”, has already been in a juried exhibition for the American Society of Marine Artists this spring and I couldn’t be more pleased that it will be at auction for such an amazing organization.

Jess Hurley Scott: Trinity Collection show EXTENDED through September!

I’ve been so busy working I’ve had really ZERO time to post, but I wanted to share that my Nantucket show at Trinity Collection has been extended! I’ll have my work there showing through the end of September! It has been a great experience so far and looking forward to spending some more time out on the island! If you are out on the island to enjoy a little early fall and haven’t yet gotten a chance to see, stop by 50 Main Street and say ‘heeeyyy’!

While the heat has finally broken, it seems real Fall weather is still not here yet so I’ll be in the water getting new stuff as much as I can! Hopefully we’ll get a few storms to blow some rollers our way soon!

New series: Mercury

There were lots of great shots, so far, I have three ‘Mercury’ pieces which will all be in my upcoming solo show at The Lucky Finn which opens June 26th and runs through July 14th.

South Shore Style TV Interview!

Had to share that my first TV interview for South Shore Style TV is now being aired on SCTV (Channel 8 for all you Scituate folks!). I’m including a link to the weekly schedule if you want to check out the air times. However, for all the the non-Scituate peeps and device inclined, here’s the YouTube links:

I got the chance to meet the awesome production team including  executive producer, Dana Duggan, and host/executive producer John Roser who came to my studio this winter to talk about my process and working as an artist. The show is three segments long featuring local business owners of the South Shore. The first segment is on the Mill Warf Restaurant, and the second is The Lucky Finn cafe, a new gallery and cafe, both are here in Scituate and I am the third in the show. Coincidentally, I have a solo show opening June 26th at The Lucky Finn, so please check out their segment as well and join us for the opening! (It’s 6-8pm)

Thanks again to Dana & John, you were so fun to work with and made it an awesome experience!

Cheers!

Canvas Studies

I had been posting on Instagram about a series of canvases I had been working on. They were in part an idea for a friend’s wedding and an exercise in loosening up at a large scale. I got a lot of great feedback on them so I wanted to share them as a whole. They are each 36 x 48″ framed in black, flush mount, solid hardwood frame.

The last of the series, Minot Tide, will be on view at the South Shore Art Center’s 60th Arts Festival June 19th-21st.

The first and third of the series, “Nantucket Sound, #3” and “Cisco” respectively, have already been SOLD.

Not what I normally do, but it was great to shake things up and work in canvas for a bit!

Cheers!
