No Disturbance in the World.

Illustration alumnus Scott Musgrove (CCAD 1989) isn’t waiting for his next gallery show to exhibit his new work. The fine artist recently brought his work to the web, nearly selling out within the first three weeks.

“Since my next gallery show isn’t until 2012 in Rome, I figured this is a good time to put together a small online show,” said Musgrove (CCAD 1989). “Available are affordable pieces including watercolors, field drawings, and mixed media.”

Of the 17 pieces Musgrove posted, only two remained unpurchased as of June 28. To view the remaining pieces, click here.

“Musgrove’s style of figural surrealism carries themes of environmental issues and endangered wildlife concerns with unique humor, depicting anomalous extinct (and fictitious) animal species,” it is written on “His new book The Late Fauna of Early North America features lush, highly detailed landscapes and close encounters with many of his strange and beautiful creatures.”

Musgrove currently lives in Seattle, Washington. His influences include Frederic Church, Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran, and John James Audubon among others. His paintings and sculptures have been exhibited in galleries and museums across the United States and Europe.
