Juror info: Scott Betz
Scott Betz received his BFA from the University of Evansville and an MFA from University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He is President of FATE (Foundations in Art: Theory and Education) and teaches at Winston-Salem State University. His work has been exhibited and is in collections across the US as well as Japan, China, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Austria, Sweden, France, Finland, Columbia, Lithuania and Belgium. He currently collaborates with his eleven year old son and nine year old daughter on hybrid art projects and exhibitions. In describing his artistic journey, Betz says, “Whether it is viewed as romanticized adventure or intellectual challenge, the process of placing oneself in unfamiliar territory and repeatedly asking and answering the same question, “How can I best operate in this system?” is a constant strategy in my studio production.” Some of his selected solo exhibitions include the Monitor, Furman University, Greenville, South Carolina and 40/40, University of South Carolina Upstate, Spartanburg, South Carolina. Selected Group Exhibitions include the Halpert Biennial, Turchin Center for Visual Art, Boone, North Carolina and the World Council for the Arts 2nd Exhibition, Herbst International Exhibition Hall, San Francisco, California
