THURSDAY, July 9th, NEWS

The Neva Scott Art Gallery will be Open for business from 9 am until 2 pm, 7.10.2020

The farmer's market will be going on, and our doors will be open for masked customers.  We are winding down and wrapping up, prior to permanently closing, but this is a day we are actually OPEN, Friday, July 10th.  The gallery has lots of art still available  for the bold, the brave, and the serious collectors.  Call if you have questions 509.531.9420


Among the sad a​cts of shutting down a business that is not really ‘open’ is actually moving out. The amazing artists that we have represented will be picking up their unsold pieces on July 4th.  The following week or few days will be spent packing up, delivering etc. (Our original plan of being open through July 31st has been abandoned. A series of unfortunate events, among which are diminishing hopes of actually being ‘open’, and, oh, yeah, sigh, my broken back ... require that we speed up the process.)​

The above piece of art "Estraella's Hand," created by Jessica Heidi Stoker has been SOLD and is no longer in the gallery.

June 29th, 2020 update

We have so enjoyed being part of the TriCity Art Scene, but,  alas, we have been shuttered for weeks that have stretched into months, and now find that we need to close our business.  We will be open (details later) for a few more days before we remove the signage and lock the door.  We have lots of art to place in their final homes.  There will be some discounting.  Please be mindful of the amazing artists we represent, BA Brad Anderson, Laura Gable, MaryAnn Free Smith, Jessica Heidi Stoker, Gary Davis, Connie Fry, Bobbi Wilson, and our sculptor, Nathan Robles.  If you have been yearning to acquire a fine piece of original art from these amazing artists, now is a good time to act. Don't hesitate to call my cell phone 509.531.9420 There is so much to sort out in just a little bit of time.

 Christy Watts  509.542.7704​

Annalyn Sheffield of Richland created this piece of art for the 2020 East Benton County History Museum's ReInvintage Art Show.

Annalyn used an old dictionary and twigs to create an assemblage

Notice the little white bird made of dictionary pages, the intricately woven nest and the multiple delicate flowers. 

The piece is 18.5 inches high, 17 inches deep and 17 inches wide.   

You Were Never So Lovely

Christy Watts

Christy,  "I chose to create this piece in memory of my husband's mother. As a girl, at approximately 17, she was the first violin chair for the Mid-Columbia Symphony.  Not long after she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS),a disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective covering of the nerves.  MS and the resulting nerve damage disrupts communication between the brain and the body.

MS causes many different symptoms, including vision loss, pain, fatique, and impaired coordination.  As a result, Nancy slowly lost the ability to do the thing she loved to do most, play the violin." 

GAS CAN MAN is Nathan's Robles entry into the East Benton County History Museum's Art Show for 2020.  He is still touching up the amazing sculpture of welded pieces of metal.  When it is polished, I will replace these photographs with pictures of the final piece of art.

GAS CAN MAN is available for purchase for a price of $10,000. It is possible to acquire this piece of art today by calling Neva Scott at 509.531.9420.    

we can complete the transaction by Venmo and arrange to deliver the piece when the virus crises abates enough to allow it. 

Maria Shoup created the 8 collages pictures above for a submission to the East Benton County History Museum's 2020 ReInvintage Art Show.  Maria used repuposed and recycled materials to create her art.  Old receipts, stamps, letters, music and paper cut outs  are seen here.

Denise Wagner of Kennewick, created this submission for the East Benton County History Museum's 2020 ReInvintage Art Show. 

These are Japanese Stones. I was taught this art form from a dear friend Mr. David Cross.  This piece is made of 7 stones gathered along the Columbia river wrapped with natural dyed cane and arranged on a piece of driftwood collected along the water while camping last summer.  A bit of glue and a lot of patience brings the piece together.   

MALUARA BRICKER

Repurposed & Natural Fiber Collage

I have a passion for paper. Maybe more like an obsession really. I love how paper feels, it's colors, its textures, how it can be simultaneously coaxed into smooth , dreamy surfaces and sharp, jagged reliefs. I love that paper is reusable, sustainable, and easily made by hand. My passion for paper is what drew me to traditional fine art collage. 

I have a passion, too, for natural fibers. Bark from trees, coconut, jute, cork, leaves, wool, you get the idea.  It is amazing to me what types of fibers occur in nature and can be used immediately with little or no processing.  But I also have a passion for repurposing. There's something about giving second life to otherwise useless little bits that makes me feel like I'm "doing my part" to be a producer, not a consumer. I enjoy using unexpected, second -chance materials in my collages like yarn from old saris; handmade paper made from phone books, egg cartons and homework; and tissue gift wrap.  If i'm able to finish off the piece with a vintage frame found at a thrift store, well, that's just a bonus.

I have a secret - most of my work is sealed so it can be ever-so-gently touched, creating what i call a visually tactile experience." Your eye thinks the texture is one way, but your hand will tell you another. Often paper and fibers will take on a new texture or color during the adhesion phase. Once the artwork is sealed and begins curing, it can change color and texture once again. It's always a bit of a surprise how things turn out.

GOOD GIRL

This is an assemblage created by Laura Gable for entry in the East Benton County Museum's ReInvintge Art Show. It is made to hang on the wall. It includes many found and re purposed items: printed letter, rocks, seashells, old keys, and an old watch. Beads, game pieces, vintage art, vintage dolly, feather, vintage thread spools, magnet, vintage box, hand painted wooden wings, a few small reproductions of my art work, a calendar reproduction of a rural Nebraska artist, and a handmade book.

Approximate Dimension: 16" wide x 18" tall

It is not freestanding. It is wired to hang on the wall.  It is not for sale.



Denise Bowles Artist Statement            In my work I use texture, color, and images real or imagined in my attempt to portray the many sensations of man: power, weakness, chaos, and peace. The push and pull of life. People ask me why I fail to settle on one medium. It's because I need to work the clay and feel it in my hands. There is something passionate about that. It's because the repetitive motion of putting paint on a canvas can calm me, but sometimes energizes me. Its because when i find that perfect little object, maybe a tiny clock face, bird bone or little plastic frog, it completes the piece ad adds that little piece of me or the person or place that gave it to me. All of these things add meaning to my life and when i look at what i created, i think of where i was then and where I am now and where i will yet go.

Lower Columbia Basin Shrub-Steppe

Bookart by Bobi Wilson

A Northwestern view of the local mountain range 

(etched copper, through the windows) with geological, environmental and ecological information hand- scribed  and drawn though a naturalist's journal.

The solidity of basalt, the certainty of the mountains, the steadfastness of the Columbia River and the magnitude of events that created them belie the fragile nature of the Lower Columbia Shrub-Steppe region.

The Flora, Fauna and creatures expressed on fragile paper represent only some of the local species considered Endangered, Threatened, of Concern, or Watched. As easy as a simple snipping of thread these species can be gone and with them much of the rarity, beauty and integrity of this place we call home.

A day in the Life of a Little Monster

BA Brad Anderson's Coloring Book is now available in our gallery. You can get one now and/or have Brad sign one for you at the Artist Reception being held on Friday, February 21st from 5 to 8 PM (Brad will be hanging out to see family, friends and fans from noon to 9) His coloring book is adorable, most likely conjured up from childhood memories.

What the heck!!!! Santa walked in the door today, November 16, 2019.  I asked him what he was doing in the neighborhood.  "Just checking up on you, Neva," he replied.  He also thought our gallery was the coolest place EVER. Which was a very fine compliment coming from the toy man himself.

He hung out for a bit and wanted to sign the guest book.  I asked him where he was from.

"Ho, ho ho," replied, "You KNOW where I live!" 

Oh, yeah, silly me, I'd thought for a minute he was just somebody  playing dress up>... duh.....

COMING IN OCTOBER, ONE WOMAN SHOW, NEVA SCOTT, ALLIED ARTS​​

PLASTIC?  Yes. Plastic, re-purposed, re-imagined, re-appreciated, found, salvaged, rescued, saved from landfills, oceans, beaches, playroom floors, and turned into art. Is it any more outrageous than Marcel Duchamp's sideways urinal? More colorful, at least... this is the art you should be seeing on pediatric dentist walls, in doctors offices, childcare facilities and in the homes of daring collectors of art. 

ART IN THE PARK WEEKEND, JULY 26, 27, 2019


Nath​an ​Robles



Neva Scott Art is a gallery located near the entrance to the charming and historic Parkway in Richland, Washington.

 Just a block from the beautiful Columbia River and Howard Amon Park, we showcase fine art created by local artists

 and artists with ties to the TriCities. The gallery opened for business in late June, 2019.  

We were overwhelmed with a warm response from the community at our 

     Grand Opening on July 12.
