“Visions of the Great Plains” – Opening Exhibit for Scott Kirby

“Visions of the Great Plains” is comprised of whimsical and colorful watercolor paintings inspired by the American Plains and Prairies.

Scott Kirby, a life-long musician and composer, only started painting at the age of 40, with no background, training, or even conscious intention of becoming an artist. In 2004 Kirby took his family to Brazil to see the healer known as “John of God.” Although a skeptic going into this experience, he found simple but profound changes were in store. Upon returning to the U.S. Kirby noticed that his visual sense was heightened – colors seemed more intense and everything felt like it was “vibrating.”

Then a few weeks later, while sitting down to draw with his girls one day, he found he was bombarded with images of mostly imaginary scenes from the Great Plains. Art soon moved from passion to compulsion, to a second career, as Kirby continued to paint these scenes, making up a body of work he calls “Visions of the Great Plains.”

Kirby rarely does public exhibits. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy art that exists purely for the joy of expression.
