Professor’s Art Featured at Renowned Virginia Gallery


HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 2, 2012 – Scott Raynor, associate professor of art and chair of the art department at High Point University, recently had his artwork featured in a national juried exhibition at the prestigious Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Va.

Raynor’s painting, titled “Arrangement with Trumpet,” appeared alongside the work of 19 other artists in a show, called “Homage,” which explored the work of artists paying homage to past influences such as Dali, Matisse, Mondrian, Lichtensein, Manet and Cezanne. The all-media exhibition was juried by Brooke Siedelmann, director of the Joan Hisaoka Arts Gallery in Washington, D.C.

“It was an honor to have my work included in a gallery and art space that has such a positive reputation in art circles,” says Raynor. “My recent works are exploring many themes of color and form, and I am excited about the new directions that my art is starting to go into.”

Raynor explains that as an art instructor, it’s incredibly important for students to see that their professors show their work in nationally and internationally known museums, as it keeps them relevant and aware of the state of the visual art and design field.

“To exhibit regularly, an artist has to be disciplined and work on creative efforts each day. This is something that we want to model for our students so that they will see that success doesn’t magically happen, but rather is the result of a much concentrated effort,” Raynor says. “We also encourage our students in the art department to take every opportunity to show their work in professional settings where their work is being peer juried and evaluated. This will better prepare them for their professional careers as artists and designers.”
