The Fly Art Gallery hosted an oil paint exhibit for featured international award winning artist Scott Carter last week at the Fly Arts Center in Shelbyville. Carter is a 20-year self taught professional artist, specializing in contemporary and realist art, who strives to capture the beauty around him in his breathtaking landscape paintings. His technique of applying oil paints over acrylics lets him add vibrant and rich tones to his work. Carter has been awarded more than 30 international certificates for his art, and was most recently awarded first place from the prestigious American Art Awards this past November, when his work was seen and voted on by 25 major galleries in the US, and was chosen from a stack of entries received from 63 countries.
