An airy, light-filled space located off the main lobby of Dibden Center for the Arts, the Julian Scott Memorial Gallery is Johnson State College’s main visual arts exhibit venue. It hosts exhibits by B.F.A. and M.F.A. art students as well as work by College faculty and visual artists from around the region and world. It’s a wonderful spot to take a break from your busy life and take in some art.
The gallery is named for one of Vermont’s most notable artists. Julian Scott (1846-1901) lived in Johnson and was a decorated soldier and a drummer during the Civil War as well as an accomplished painter and Civil War artist. One of his largest paintings of the Civil War graces the lobby of the Vermont State House in Montpelier.
