Off to the races

April 9, 2015

White horse

In college, Jay Scott was an art major. He also played football. But Scott soon decided to pass on football and pursue art.

The artist: Scott gave up his football scholarship at the University of Arizona and enrolled at the Laguna Beach College of Art + Design in California. After graduation, he worked in special effects, on movies (Jurassic Park III) and on his sculpture. The classically trained artist eventually found his niche: fine art and working with galleries and interior designers. In 2009, Scott and his family moved from Arizona, where he ran a gallery, to Alpharetta, GA.

The goods: Abstract, transitional paintings of Southern landscapes, trees, Atlanta city scenes (The Fox Theatre and Coca-Cola), and horses, which remind him of Tucson, where he grew up. Depending on size, prices range from $750 to $5,000.

Claim to fame: First major public commission for the City of Laguna Beach in 2002. Also created artwork for the Water Polo Hall of Fame, the City of Nashville and Warner Brothers. Also created work for celebrity artists, including Lil Wayne, Zac Brown Band, Rascal Flatts and Mack Maine.

Where to buy: Ivan Pitoni, owner of Chic Evolution in Art, 29 Milton Ave., Alpharetta (on facebook: Chic Evolution in Art). Learn more about Scott at
