Scot Dolby Featured in November

Our original calendar for 2020 has Scot Dolby as our featured artist in November and that is happening! Scot’s first featured show was in November 2008, five months after he retired from teaching. Now 9 months into the COVID pandemic, we are pleased to show his recent work, Quarantine: Creeks, Cedars, and Seas, as his seventh show. Although Scot is often inspired by his travels, the subjects for this show are close by. He is known for his deep foregrounds of fields, marshes and seascapes with palettes that change with the season. We always look forward to his mixed media paintings done on cigar box tops. So far this show has several shown below.

Scot will introduce this show on Thursday, November 5, with a Facebook Live post at 7 pm. Use this link to get to Facebook Live. Express your interest in the event and you will get a reminder. To get ready for the live post be sure to review Scot’s paintings in Facebook Albums. Use this link. The paintings will also be shown on Bishop’s Stock. Anyone interested in any of the work may send a Facebook message or email info@bishopsstock.com.

Doug Fisher will be here carving on Fridays and Saturdays. Masks are required with no more than 6 visitors at a time and social distancing must be practiced.

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.
