Musician, Scott Avett, Shows the Other Side of His Artistic Talent During This Exhibit

Internationally recognized as the co-founder of the band The Avett Brothers, Scott Avett has been a working artist, focusing on painting and printmaking, since he earned a BFA in studio art from East Carolina University in 2000. But, until now this art-making part of his life has been a secret and a more solitary creative pursuit in comparison to his life as a musician, singer, and songwriter.

The North Carolina Museum of Art is inviting the community to view our latest exhibit, Scott Avett: INVISIBLE, for a chance to get a closer glimpse at the artwork of Avett.

This solo exhibition features Avett’s large-scale oil paintings. These are psychologically charged and emotionally intense portraits focused on his family and himself—often intimate, vulnerable, and sometimes uncomfortably truthful portrayals. Like his songs, Avett’s paintings speak to universal issues of spirituality and struggle, love and loss, heartache and joy, as well as more personal stories of career, family, and living in the South.

The exhibition also includes prints and paintings related to Avett’s musical career. While the exhibition is suitable for all ages, please note that some works of art in Scott Avett: INVISIBLE includes adult content. Scott Avett: INVISIBLE will be on display at the North Carolina Museum of Art until February 2, 2020.

North Carolina Museum of Art is a museum where you can find your own place—whether in contemplative spaces or through lively, engaging tours, performing arts, and family workshops. We invite you to create your own captivating experience during your visit. For more information, please visit www.ncartmuseum.org or call (919) 839-6262.
