Scott Cawood, Antietam, MD
Scott Cawood lives and works at his residence in historic Antietam MD where he has been a professional artist since 1992. His work created of scrap steel is a reflection of how the world works, looks, and feels to him—of the everyday discourse he sees as visual celebrations and contradictions. His work has been exhibited nationally and has been commissioned by the City of Frederick, MD; the Baltimore Public Works Museum; Courtyard By Marriot; MTV’s Real World; and The Contemporary American Theater Festival.
Michael Timothy Davis, Shepherdstown, WV
Michael Davis graduated from Shepherd University with a BFA in painting. Here the modernist approach to teaching and stylistic differences at once provided challenges and motivation to explore the more classical aesthetics that he believed in. While attending Shepherd Michael studied independently with Ben Summerford the former Art Chair at American University. Ben’s guidance and enthusiasm proved to be a lasting inspiration. After graduation, Michael continued his studies at The Schuler School of Fine Art in Baltimore, MD. At Schuler’s he finally felt at home with his desires and ambitions to continue with the traditions of classical realism. Out of school he now has a studio in his house where he paints and draws daily. Students can be found here as well studying and learning the same fundamentals and traditions that enlightened Michael’s life and art.
