Marine Arts Gallery, October 13th – November 5th- Extended!

Update!, My work being exhibited at The Marine Arts Gallery in Marblehead, MA is being extended a few weeks!

The 47 year established gallery is in a new, year-old space after selling their former property to the Peabody Essex Museum for their major expansion. There is quite a range of my work being shown including some of my largest pieces, at close to 3′ x 4′, to small works and studies at 6″ x 6″.

This has been my first exhibition on the North Shore and so far it has been a fantastic experience! We had a very successful opening night on the 13th with great responses and reactions, not to mention getting to know some of the local art community. The gallery has a high caliber group of regional artists and it has so far been wonderful to work with them.

While some work has sold, there is still plenty to see (more than 20 pieces) if you are in the Salem/Marblehead area. I’m not sure exactly the closing date as it may depend on the wee babe, but will keep you posted!

Here’s to 2016! I am completely thrilled to be invited to the exhibition, “New Work, New York” at the Woodward Gallery, in Manhattan. The exhibition highlights the art of 18 artists, none of which have shown at the gallery before.

My piece, “And Again”,  was selected and will be on display until the end of February.

It’s even more special that the gallery is around the corner from my first apartment in New York when I moved to the Lower East Side in 2000. Kind of fun to be near my old hood (even though it is SOOO much nicer now than back then)! Hope to see you at the opening!

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!
