Painter of Americana-themed subjects; lyrical glimpses of beaches, fishermen, deserted gas station pumps, farm trucks, still-life, creatures...
Scott Hewett, originally from Bradford, Massachusetts, moved to Sag Harbor in 1998 to pursue a lifelong passion in art. He holds a BFA with honors from Massachusetts College of Art and has won several awards, including the Tom O’Hara Award for Illustration.
For Scott, the eastern end of Long Island offers an incredible variety of scenes and subject matter. He has embraced the area — from the farms, to the wooded areas, to the coast and the harbors, the lifestyle and especially the unique Long Island “light”— and renders his subjects into vividly colorful paintings. A local landscape, a rusted old truck or a still life painting of everyday objects like a peeled orange or crayon box, he transports the ordinary into art. His style has been dubbed, “realism with pop.” Most incredible is the large-scale size depictions of his subjects. He has shown in group and solo shows and at many galleries. His work is in many private collections.
Scott is also an accomplished footwear designer and musician (drums). His designs, worn by many famous athletes, earned him recognition as one of the "top 15 footwear designers you should know." Also 2014, 2015 Dan's Papers Best of the Best East End.
