J SCOTT WILSON

A full-time painter, graphic designer and part-time writer, Scott has shown his art in more than three dozen successful exhibitions since 1998. In 2011, he established his studio, J. Scott Wilson Fine Art and gallery in Manzanita. The following year he renamed it Seagrass Gallery, and began showcasing other artists alongside his own works. In 2014, he relocated the gallery to this larger space, which is Polaris Gallery to accommodate larger works, sculpture and installations.
