Madisonville, KY – August 12, 2022 – The Anne P. Baker Gallery presents “Jumanji: This Isn’t a Game,” a mixed media exhibit by Jarrid Scott. This collection will be on display from August 26 to October 22, 2022. The community is invited to an opening reception on Friday, August 26, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Jarrid Scott is a mixed media artist, illustrator, sculptor, muralist, and printmaker born and raised in Dawson Springs, Kentucky. He received his Bachelor of Fine Art in Illustration at Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta in 2015, and was named Bill Grandstaff Artist of the Year, 2020, by The Princeton Kentucky Art Guild.
Scott says he “created ‘Jumanji: This Isn’t a Game’ to draw awareness to the ways in which the collective fails our planet, while inspiring viewers to reflect on their role in preservation.” Throughout the exhibit, he uses recycled and repurposed materials like single use plastics as means of visual storytelling focused on conservation. Through his art, he contemplates life of an alternative future, including the likelihood of residing in space. His interstellar works comment on how different our lifestyles might be if our current planet fails us or, rather, if we fail it.
The Anne P. Baker Gallery is located inside the Glema Mahr Center for the Arts on the campus of Madisonville Community College. The gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with extended hours on Glema Center event days. Gallery admission is free, and gallery hours are posted on the Glema Center Facebook page.
