Morris & Whiteside Galleries on Hilton Head Is., SC, Offers Works by Stephen Scott Young
Morris & Whiteside Galleries on Hilton
Head Island, SC, will present new works by Stephen Scott Young,
during the month of February, 2011.
Stephen Scott Young is known for his watercolor paintings. Inspired by the work of Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, and Andrew Wyeth, Young has done highly finished, detailed figurative subjects.
A graduate of the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, FL, Young began working in watercolor in 1976, and took first prize at the American Artists national art competition in watercolors in 1985. Also, in the early 1980's, Young made his first trip to the Bahamas where he discovered the crisp, bright light that has become the hallmark of his paintings today. Currently, the artist divides his time between studios in Florida and the Bahamas.
Each masterwork by Young is preceded by numerous drawings, sketches, studies, and preparatory paintings. The spirit of these works in progress often exceeds the finished subject and, when available, are eagerly sought by collectors.
Young has had many one man exhibitions at various art galleries and museums including: The Norton Gallery of Art, West Palm Beach, FL; The Hunter Museum of Art, Chattanooga, TN; The Greenville County Museum of Art, Greenville, SC; Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, FL; The Arkansas Arts Center, Little Rock, AR; The Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, OH; Jacksonville Art Museum, Jacksonville, FL; and The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, AL.
