Jeannette Scollard Selected As Best In Show for 50 TO WATCH 2018

Biennial Exhibit Encompasses fifty artists, Two Galleries and a National Publication 


The work of artist Jeannette Scollard was selected as “Best In Show” in this year’s prestigious biennial exhibit 50 To Watch. The two pieces named – Summer Solstice and Peace in the Valley highlight Scollard’s exploration of the mystical triangle. The show is a celebration of contemporary art in San Diego designed to showcase some of the best visual artists in the region. The 50 To Watch exhibitions offer two month-long gallery shows with openings, an online gallery and a national publication which is distributed to 1,000+ galleries. 

“I am very honored that my work was selected as Best In Show, and it was a complete surprise” said Jeannette Scollard. “The pieces that were selected represent my ongoing exploration of the Pythagorean theorem and the geometric perfection of the triangle. My interpretation features uninhabited vistas with brilliant sunlight. Inspired by the deserts and oceans of Southern California, there is a sense of vague familiarity that compels people to see something personal in my work. Which delights me to no end!  I am also very appreciative of Patric Stillman who is founder and director of 50 To Watch. He puts a lot of work and energy to give the art community more opportunities, including publishing a program that will reach art collectors throughout the Country.”

50 To Watch, is the brainchild of Patric Stillman, an artist and gallery owner of The Studio Door, who told onlookers at this year’s show that the quality of the artwork did not disappoint. “The Studio Door is so proud of all the participating artists who are working hard on their body of work and engaging in creative commerce,” said Stillman. “It is a pleasure to be able to take the pulse of San Diego's visual arts community with this special program. Even better is the connections the artists make with galleries across the country as they seek out exposure for their art and ideas.” The exhibitions took place at The Studio Door and at The Expressions Gallery in Escondido. The 2018 Juror is Maria Mingalone, executive director of Oceanside Museum of Art.

Jeannette Scollard Selected for Art Venture 2017

Painter Jeannette Scollard has been selected to exhibit three works – Solitary Voyage (Adrift Series II), Personal Desert, (Portal Series X) and Secret Journey (Portal Series XI) at the City of Costa Mesa's third annual juried exhibition of art, ARTventure, during the weekend of November 10 & 11 at Design Within Reach at SOCO and The OC Mix in Costa Mesa.

 

ARTventure is a fusion of the arts and entertainment, showcasing the work of Orange County artists and beyond, displayed in a state-of-the-art showroom with live entertainment and culinary treats. ARTVenture at SOCO highlights why Costa Mesa is known as the "City of the Arts."

 

Scollard is pleased to be selected on her first application. “My landscapes are panoramas of uninhabited vistas that seem familiar but quite unreal,” she says. “I am inspired by the brilliant sunlight, ocean and deserts of Southern California with multi- blue waters and layered sands. And, I believe that it is this that resonated with the Costa Mesa jurists who selected the art for the show.”

 

Scollard paints with acrylic (and oil highlights) on canvas frequently employing palette knives for a virtual bas relief.  She prefers the power of large canvasses, but paints smaller sizes, frequently as studies for major works.

2016 Southern California/Baja Biennial

North County painter Jeannette Scollard has been selected to exhibit her work entitled Expanded Horizons at the 2016 Southern California/Baja Biennial.  The Biennial is produced by the San Diego Art Institute, features juried invitational work by artists living and working between Los Angeles and Tijuana. The Biennial opened December 10 and runs through January 29, 2017 at the San Diego Art Institute located 1439 El Prado in Balboa Park.

 

Scollard is delighted to be selected on her first application. “I am a self-styled Neo-Surrealist,” she says. “My paintings depict the architecture of nature, distilled down to its essentials. I consider it the ‘frozen music’ of the components of planetary life.”

 

For four decades the San Diego Art Institute has sponsored the Southern California/Baja Biennial international exhibition. This year’s show is juried by Anthony Graham, Assistant Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego and features work in a range of mediums including photography, installation, painting, video, and sculpture.

 

Critics note that Scollard's landscapes are compelling and cerebral, provide panoramas of uninhabited vistas, vaguely familiar but quite unreal.  “I do not paint anything that can be photographed.  I strive to create fresh new worlds constructed of familiar shapes and colors, unique domains viewers can inhabit without preconceptions,” said Scollard. “I juxtapose the familiar with the austere. The brilliant sunlight, ocean and deserts of Southern California, its dazzling blue waters and golden sand, inspire me.”  

 

Scollard paints with acrylic (and oil highlights) on canvas and her stylized vistas often frequently employ palette knives for a virtual bas relief.  She prefers the power of large canvasses, but paints smaller sizes, frequently as studies for major works.
