Big thanks! Fun interview and lots of images of my work are up on the new art site WOW x WOW check it out on their site. They also have a Facebook page.
Scott G. Brooks is an American artist, currently residing in the country’s capital city, Washington D.C. He paints images which provide us with a glimpse into the darker core of our human existence. No subject is off limits or too challenging for Brooks, and his canvases are brimming full of stories which take their cues from our murky social, psychological and political lives, all filtered through his offbeat sense of humour. The psyche and appearance of the characters in Scott’s tales are exposed to the viewer to reveal everything from their dominance through to their vulnerabilities, as a means of allowing us to reflect on human nature in contemporary times.
Scott’s unique vision and masterly use of paint has earned him an international following and has seen him exhibit his work in prestigious galleries around the world.
WOW x WOW caught up with Scott as he prepares for his next solo show, to discuss his artistic thoughts, process and working life. – read more…

GROUP TOURS! Last Spring we introduced a very popular new feature of the Open Studios weekend: Tour with an Expert! Join an art lover, curator, or artist on a guided tour of a few studios. Mid City Artists has arranged five tours for you to share your studio visit with an expert, who knows how to ask the questions, and each with a small group of no more than 10 people. Each guide will visit 4-6 studios in about two hours. The meet up location is on the reservation form and the studios will be in walking distance from that location. Free. Space is limited. You must reserve in advance by clicking through to a reservation page HERE.
