Pence-Chowning Gallery showing art of Jeff & Henrietta Scott
"Lifetime Partners: Art of Jeff & Henrietta Scott." On display at Pence-Chowing Art Gallery. Henrietta lives on a picturesque ridge in southern Adair County surrounded by an apple orchard, deep hollows and clear springs. It is from these elements of nature that she takes much of her inspiration for her watercolors, oil pastels and Raku pottery.

CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY (Wed 26 Sep 2017) - Campbellsville University's Department of Art and Design is hosting "Lifetime Partners: Art of Jeff & Henrietta Scott" through October 5, 2017, at The Pence-Chowning Art Gallery, 205 University Drive, Campbellsville, KY.
The show is in memory of the shared collaboration of the couple. Jeff Scott died in August 2016 losing his battle with pancreatic cancer.
The show is open to the public at no charge.
Jeff and Henrietta Scott had owned and operated a gallery and studio called Highland Raku in Columbia, KY, since summer 2000. Both had retired from the Adair County School System, and they collaborated in making their trademark horsehair Raku, inspired by a strong interest in the American Art and Graft Movement.
Both had taken post graduate classes and workshops and learned the art of raku firing, attending workshops in Raku at Arrowmont School for Crafts and Appalachian School for Arts and Crafts. Jeff, being an old wood burner, became an excellent potter, and Henrietta explored the infinite possibilities of raku glazing.
Their work evolved as they experimented with different forms and techniques. Eventually, Jeff began using his wood turning skills to fit wooden lids on his vessels.
Highland Raku began and continued to display and sell at craft fairs, the Kentucky Artisan Center and the Kentucky Guild Shop.
Henrietta taught art for 30 years at Adair County High School, and Jeff was a former teacher and principal at Adair County High School. In 1986, Henrietta received the Governor's Award in the Arts for art education.
Henrietta is an adjunct instructor in art at Campbellsville University and Lindsey Wilson College.
Their Raku fired pottery has been juried into the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen and Kentucky Crafted: The Market.
Henrietta has won several awards including: Outstanding Art Student - Eastern Kentucky University, Richmond, KY, in 1967; Governor's Awards in the Arts in 1985 and Art Educator of the Year in 1985.
Henrietta is associated with professional organizations including Kentucky Watercolor Society as a regional representive, Kentucky Guild Artists and Craftsmen and Kentucky Crafted: The Market.
She graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with distinction, received her master of arts from Western Kentucky University and did graduate work at Ball State University. She did post graduate work at Texas A and M University.
Henrietta lives on a picturesque ridge in southern Adair County surrounded by an apple orchard, deep hollows and clear springs. It is from these elements of nature that she takes much of her inspiration for her watercolors, oil pastels and Raku pottery.
"As the environment evolves and is transformed, I try to mimic these changes in my technique. Experimenting with different styles and media has given me freedom to explore my Kentucky roots," she said.
Drawing from this richness of place and people, she was able to nurture and develop and appreciation of the arts in numerous students during her 30 plus year teaching career. Gallery Hours
