Tomorrow night in New York, Scott Musgrove (featured) will be making a return to Jonathan LeVine Gallery for his third solo there. Entitled Wilder, the new paintings, drawings and sculptures from the Seattle-based artist continues his longstanding series of works that explore mythical creatures that are now extinct. Although Musgrove’s imagery holds an element of whimsy and humor, he is nonetheless sincere in his focus on issues of conservation and his concern with the rate of extinction of endangered species in our world.

While some of the artists rendered the lyrics in […]

On June 14h, the Dorothy Circus Gallery in Italy will be playing host to a new body of work from Seattle-based painter Scott Musgrove. Fame I’m Going To Live Forever will be sure to include many of his signature surreal lifeforms, introducing fans in Rome to many new species that they never knew existed.
