3 paintings.

For four days beginning on November 20, Hostos professor and celebrated artist Ian Charles Scott will have his work displayed in an exhibit at the Park Avenue Armory. Located at 643 Park Avenue, the venue has been home to the work of such important artists as Marcel Duchamp and Pablo Picasso.

Scott will be showing four new “surrealist” paintings — three oils and one watercolor — Scott has been working on for the last two years. It is the first time Scott’s work will be presented there.

There will be several galleries showcasing work in the Armory, and Scott will be represented by the Marion Harris Gallery located on Park Avenue.

Scott said he is excited that several current and former students will be definitely visiting the Armory to see this exciting exhibit.

There is an opening reception for the exhibit at the Armory on Friday, November 20, from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
