State Gallery is thrilled to host Squire Foundation Artist in Residence Toni Scott, showcasing her stunning sculpture Empire, and new works from her current residency project at the Squire Foundation. We are pleased to support Ms. Scott’s powerful narrative of heritage, history and intimate sculptures.
Toni Scott’s exhibitions and installations weave together artistically powerful stories presented through installations, multi-media, photography, painting, sculpture and digital ingenuity, often referencing fraught histories."Learning of my multicultural family heritage has inspired me to give life to the lost images and stories of history." Scott's "Bloodlines" series is a testament to her goals to inspire, educate, heal, engage, stimulate dialog, and bring together diverse cultures."In every work I create resides a commitment to themes that build and enrich humanity."Scott’s work has been awarded and celebrated internationally. In 2012, she created a solo mixed media installation, Bloodlines, for the California African American Museum.
Join us to celebrate this incredible installation and the creativity of its artist, Toni Scott.
