FSU Art MFA '16 Scott Bell Featured in the Tallahassee Democrat

Published March 23, 2015

FSU Art MFA ’16, Scott Bell, has been featured in the Tallahassee Democrat with an article titled: White Walls Sparked Artist’s Painting Bug

White walls sparked artist’s painting bugThe article explains how Scott Bell started his career as an artist, and how he was first inspired by the white walls in his apartment.

“When I moved into my first apartment, all of the walls were white,” he said. “I wanted to put something on the walls, so I bought some acrylic paints and started painting pictures. I was having a lot of fun doing them, and people that came over really liked them. That sort of gave me the push, and I started taking classes after that, and it all sort of built up from there.”

Scott Bell used to be a business major at the University of North Florida, but after he realized that he didn’t want to go on that path, he transitioned into art. This time, he decided that he would formally learn the fundamentals of painting, instead of self teaching. He has loved painting for a long time, especially oil painting, because he believes it’s “the most versatile.”

Bell’s paintings will be featured in this year’s Creative Tallahassee exhibit, hosted by the Council of Culture & Arts at the City Hall Gallery, 300 South Adams St.

Exhibit is on display from March 25-May 25. City Hall Gallery is open M-F from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. A public opening reception will be held on Friday, April 10, from 6-7:30 p.m.
