November Featured Artist – Scot Dolby

 

Our featured artist in November has been with us for 15 years. Scot Dolby continues to find memorable landscapes wherever he travels but particularly when he is looking for the perfect fishing stream. His show, A View from a Stream, is inspired by great fly-fishing areas from Montana, Maine, Vermont to the Eastern Shore. As he finds a perfect stream Scot does not forget the beauty of the surrounding landscape. He actually carries that memory back home to his studio. His tonal style makes these discovered landscapes so serene. They seem to carry forth a surrounding calm that attracts the fish and the fisherman. The opening reception is First Friday, November 2 from 5 until 8.
