Gallery Seventeen in Greenville, SC, Offers Works by Scott Harris

Gallery Seventeen in Greenville, SC, will present A New Perspective - the Works of Scott Harris, on view from May 1 through June 30, 2013. A reception will be held on May 3, from 6-9pm.

Much of the imagery chosen for Harris’ exhibition focuses on Greenville, SC – the new urban development and architecture as well as the landscaped parks and rural areas. These spaces are part of everyday life and may seem ordinary, but Harris hopes that his method of visual explanation will allow these areas the opportunity to be seen in a new perspective.

Harris is an aluminum artist and sculptor rapidly gaining popularity throughout the southeast. Born in Fargo, ND, He re-located to the mountains of NC in 1996. He completed his BA in Visual Arts from Brevard College, where he first experimented with paint on aluminum due to its flexible surface. As the process evolved, he discovered the reflective quality of the material added depth and movement to his art.  

Harris enjoys creating imagery that exhibits the contrast between a warm, organic image on a cold, industrial surface. He has been featured in several publications including Carolina Home and Garden, and Greensboro Monthly. Harris has completed many personal and corporate commissions, including a 14 ft. mobile in the RBC Building in Raleigh, NC, as well as a 16 ft. sculpture as the centerpiece of NorthPark commercial development and two sculptures for Tanger Outlets in Mebane, NC. Paintings are also being exhibited at the newly constructed Raleigh Convention Center and at the Durham Center. Harris’ work is featured in galleries in Georgia, Tennessee, and the Carolinas.
