​Clint Scott Artist Reception – This Friday!​   Mack art Card
Join us FridayNovember 6​th from 6:00 – 8:00 to enjoy and celebrate the work our our own MACK resident artist, Clint Scott. His work will remain on display throughout the month of November. This event is open to the general public.​ No Fee.  Donations are appreciated.​
Originally from Hazel Park, Michigan, artist Clint Scott graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1971 with a BFA degree in Graphic Design & Illustration. Fresh out of college, ABC Network Television hired Clint as an Associate Art Director to do movie and news art. After a few years, he landed his dream job as an advertising art director and illustrator for Pitt Studios, one of the nation’s largest art studios.
As a young artist, Clint felt blessed to be tutored by some of the finest illustrators and designers in the country. He worked with artists who specialized in hand letter- ing, acrylic painting, watercolor, paper sculpture & drawing. As Clint explains, “The old timers were very generous with sharing their secrets” and he believes that this is where he first understood the gift of passing down the mystery of art.

Clint was honored with numerous Communicating Arts and American Institute of Graphic Arts awards while at Pitt Studios. He was also selected to exhibit in the Bicentennial Smithsonian Show for stamp design. In 1989 one of his pieces won as one of the top ten posters in America as judged by Target Marketing Magazine. After 14 years at the studio, Clint was promoted to Creative Director.
After deciding that the northern winters were too long, Clint moved to Atlanta where he & his wife Lynda worked for the next ten years. During that time, he became more involved in digital and vectored design & began teaching at the Atlanta College of Art . In 2005, Clint & Lynda moved to McCormick, SC. The serene beauty, hometown atmosphere and the supportive arts community were irresistible. Over the last 8 years, Mr. Scott has been teaching at Piedmont Technical College and the McCormick Arts Council. “It has been very rewarding to see students surprised by what they didn’t know they could achieve.”
