BERKELEY COLLEGE PRESENTS AN EXHIBIT BY
Berkeley College is presenting the artwork of Scott Eagle at its Midtown Manhattan Gallery, 3 East 43rd Street, New York City. The exhibit is on display from March 3 through April 30 — Monday through Friday — from 9:00 am to 7:30 pm and on Saturdays from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm.
Mr. Eagle was raised in Winston-Salem, NC, and now works and lives in Greenville. At East Carolina University, he is the Assistant Director of the School of Art and Design, Graduate Studies Director, and Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing.
“My artwork is the exploration and expression of personal spirituality and psychology through the use of imagery derived from my environment, dreams, mythology and artistic masterworks,” said Mr. Eagle. “Through the creative process, each individual work becomes a tangible response to life itself.”
Mr. Eagle’s art has been exhibited and reproduced internationally. His work has appeared in publications as varied as The Oxford American and The New York Times. He has created book jackets for Prime Books and PS Publishing, among others. Since early 2000, he has been collaborating with author Jeff VanderMeer, winner of numerous awards and author of more than 20 books. In October 2013, Mr. VanderMeer published Wonderbook: The Illustrative Guide to Creating Imaginative Fiction, in which Mr. Eagle has four of his artworks used as illustration, an interview and a photograph. Mr. Eagle has also been selected by Creative Quarterly magazine as one of its top 100 creatives for 2013.
“Scott Eagle is a great talent,” said Robert Keiber, Curator, Midtown Manhattan and Brooklyn galleries, “I am fascinated by the way he uses magazines, old books, yardsticks, blood — really anything in his art. As he says, anything that enters his life may enter his work. I know all who come to the exhibit will be intrigued by his work.”
