Memento Mori

If you would like to see this bloody severed head, it will be on view at the Target Gallery in the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Va.

Opening Reception: Friday, October 11, 7 – 10pm, with juror talk at 8pm

The Gallery will be closed on Monday, October 14 in observance of Indigenous People’s Day.*


The newest exhibition in Target Gallery, the contemporary exhibitions space of Torpedo Factory Art Center, explores death and the way it shapes life. Memento Mori, Latin for “remember that you will die,” confronts this single most inevitable fact of all human existence.

“The intention is to create a dialogue about death in a way that every viewer can relate,” said Curator of Exhibitions Leslie Mounaime. “The goal being to facilitate personal connections between the artists in the show and the audience experiencing it.”

Laura Roulet, a D.C.-based independent curator and writer, juried the exhibition. She selected 28 works by artists from across the world, ten of whom are local to the region.

“These artists express fear and sadness, as well as comfort and spiritual faith. Many of these artworks are deeply personal, referring to the artist’s own brush with death or loss of a loved one,” said Roulet. “Whether through figurative, abstract or conceptual language, I believe this exhibition includes artworks that will speak to all.”

I also had a blushingly wonderful write up in the Winston Salem Journal by Tom Patterson for my solo show at Delurk Gallery in Winston Salem including this quote;

 “Winston-Salem native Scott Eagle is one of North Carolina’s most skilled and thematically ambitious artists, as well as a professor of painting and drawing at East Carolina University’s School of Art and Design. His own work spans multiple mediums in its richly imaginative exploration of personal spirituality through imagery derived from mythology, art history, his dreams and his experiences in the waking world.“

2016-2017 North Carolina Arts Council Regional Artist Project Grant Recipient

I received a North Carolina Arts Council regional artist grant to fund my research into integrating archival digital printing into the traditional painting process. It was a glimmer of hope and good news in a year that I had written off as a total disaster.

If you would like to read a little bit about that process, please wander over to this blog post. http://scotteagle.com/blog/category/zwh6vnn46x4i6copv1jdve1oystvgs  Don't worry, there are lots of pictures.
