|Artist Toni Scott to present multimedia exhibit Feb. 7 at UNCís Stone Center|
|Monday, January 28, 2013|
Los Angeles artist Toni Scott will present her multimedia exhibition “Bloodlines” with a free public talk at the opening reception Feb. 7 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The exhibit will be on display through April 26 at the Robert and Sallie Brown Gallery of the Sonja Haynes Stone Center. The reception and talk will begin at 7 p.m.
As part of the Brown Gallery series, “La Sombra y el Espíritu II: Women’s Healing Rituals in the Diaspora,” Scott’s “Bloodlines” explores real stories of courage, survival and racism through sculpture, painting and digital renderings.
Scott has sought to express her love of God, beauty, humanity and culture in everything she creates. Her work ranges from lifelike sculptures cast in bronze and fiberglass to carvings in marble, alabaster, soapstone and Douglas fir – wood from which she carves totem poles that stand over nine feet tall. Her paintings range from large-scale, colorful, figurative works to masterful representational paintings in oil.
Scott studied the classic and contemporary masters at the Otis College of Art and Design and the University of Southern California, where she earned a bachelor’s degree.
The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday or by appointment. For more information on the exhibition, call (919) 962-9001, email
