“Elements,” a Joanne S. Scott retrospective on view in the studio gallery, features acrylics, watercolors, etchings, and lithographs, primarily from the past five years She has lived on or near water all her life, thus her imagery reflects that.

She became involved in the local art organizations and founded the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts Anne Arundel County Cultural Arts Center in 1981.
