Main Street Gallery to Feature Artist Mel Scott During Georgefest March 3

Billed “nightlife you can get excited about,” Georgefest celebrates local artists, entertainers and musicians at Historic Downtown on the first Friday of every month. March 3 will be no exception.

At the new Main Street art and showcase venue, Gallery 35, Dixie Watercolor Society will host an artist reception featuring southern Utah watercolorist, Mel Scott. 

An instructor in watercolor at Dixie State University, Scott and has been a member of the Society since its founding in 1999. Featuring 11 of her paintings, the March exhibit includes portraits and florals. 

In addition to her DWS signature/charter membership, Scott is member of the Southern Utah Art Guild, Virgin Valley Arts Association at Mesquite Nev., and is former Tuacahn High School visual arts chair. Her studio is also a destination of the Arts to Zion Studio TOUR – southern Utah’s largest annual visual art event. 

Scott’s work is also currently on display at Dixie State University where she has two oil paintings selected for the 30th Annual Sears Art Invitational.

“I work in all mediums,” she said. “I enjoy exploring new mediums and am currently working in alcohol ink on ceramic tile.”

Dixie Watercolor Society is a non-profit organization located at Gallery 35 at Historic Downtown St. George. The purpose of DWS is to encourage, educate, and promote its member artists. Also, to share the rich culture of transparent watercolor through gallery exhibits, competitions and workshops.

Every first Friday night in conjunction with Georgefest, DWS promotes the work of southern Utah watercolor artists and hosts a reception open to the public at Gallery 35, located at 35 South Main Street.
