Lebanon artist R. Scott Harris will debut his new line of “whimsical” Christmas paintings, hand painted ornaments and a new line of Christmas greeting cards that feature some of his work on Saturday, Nov. 21.
Harris’ art show is named “A Holiday Happening” and will be held at SS Graham’s Floral at 1318A West Main Street in Lebanon.
Wendi Warren, agent for Harris, said, “We’ve worked hard to connect with people and get our name out there. Scott’s fun and whimsical style has really caught-on and he’s quickly developed quite a following.” She added, “We also try to keep our pricing very affordable because in this down economy, people don’t have as much to spend on items like paintings, but we’ve found that people still enjoy surrounding themselves with things they love!”
“The past year has been a crazy, whirlwind adventure,” Harris noted. “My agent and I started getting my paintings out there slowly, but surely, starting with Oktoberfest in 2008 and since then we have developed quite a following. I enjoy the sparkle in someone’s eye when they look at my paintings and smile! Many of my paintings are items that I have created, but I’m experiencing more and more folks calling and making special requests for custom paintings.”
In May, the company that Harris worked for moved out of state and being a hometown boy, he opted to stay put in Lebanon and focus on his art and other ventures. Currently Harris is consulting with local businesses on their marketing, advertising and branding campaigns.
Warren added, “We are currently working on new ventures with Scott’s art which will include greeting cards, note cards, art classes and more.”
Harris’s work is on display at SS Graham Floral, Cox’s Gifts and Michael’s Café.
