Scott Prior

Scott Prior is a master at painting the familiar in a way we have never seen before.  Whether painting the figure, a landscape or a still life, it is the quality of light that makes his work distinct.  Light itself is his main subject matter.  He uses objects and settings that are instantly familiar while avoiding the exotic or foreign.  Consequently, his paintings have a strong relationship to our everyday life.

Scott Prior is one of the founding members of a group of painters referred to as the Valley Realists.  He is a graduate from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst with a major in printmaking.  He was a resident of the MacDowell Colony from 1974-76 and again from 1979-80.  He has had numerous solo and group exhibits nationwide.  Prior's artwork is in many important public and private collections, including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, Massachusetts and the New Britain Museum of American Art in Connecticut.
