Youth Interactive is thrilled to partner with Santa Barbara's Squire Foundation in presenting their October Artist in Residence, Toni Scott.
Youth Interactive's State Gallery will feature Ms. Scott's works in November, opening with an artist reception during our First Thursday event on November 1st, with her work hanging in the State Gallery. We are pleased to host her in the gallery in October to discuss her craft, journey as an artist and answer questions about her process.
