A White County High School graduate will have his senior thesis exhibition officially placed on display, on Nov. 29, at Tennessee Tech University.
Brandon Michael Scott, a 2011 graduate from White County High School and current Tennessee Tech painting student, will have his senior thesis exhibition open and on display at the Bryan Fine Arts building Dec.1-14. A reception will be held at 5 p.m., Dec. 14.
“Charles Hopper III” an exhibition by Scott, will feature oil paintings of the biographical life story of a fictional character that Scott has created, Charles Hopper III, for which the exhibition is titled. Hopper was an English immigrant in the early 20th century, arriving in New York, in 1912, before settling in Appalachia. While here, Hopper cultivated his own version of the American Dream by starting a distillery, post-prohibition.
Scott is a Tennessee transplant from Ohio, but has fallen in love with the area after moving to Sparta at the age of 12. Scott will be graduating from Tennessee Tech University, on Dec. 16, 2017, with a bachelor’s in painting
Scott commented about his plans after graduation.
“I’ll be working full time as a Tech Support Representative at Relatient’s Cookeville Office,” he said. “But, I’ve also started a two-sided online company. One side is BrandonMichaelScott.com selling art and designs that I have created. The other is The Blundr.com, an online publication to help people overcome fears of failures and use failure as a tool for improvement and success.”
The exhibition can be seen in the main lobby of the Bryan Fine Arts building, at 1150 N. Dixie Ave. Viewing hours are 7 a.m.-10 p.m., Monday-Friday, and 10 a.m.-10 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.
