Bill Scott, Painter
Born in Bryn Mawr and raised in Haverford, Scott studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from 1974 to 1979. Scott's continuity and legacy within the Philadelphia tradition, united with his own unique process and approach to composition and form, have been recognized by colleagues, critics and collectors. His work has recently been accepted to the National Academy Museum's 179th Annual exhibition in 2004, where it won the Adolph and Clara Obrig Prize. Other major public collections that include Scott's work include the Delaware Art Museum, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Butler Institute of American Art, and the Munson Williams Proctor Institute Museum of Art.
