Scott Plaster's Whimsical Art Cards Now at the Weatherspoon Gallery Gift Shop (WAM Shop)

Scott Plaster's Whimsical Art Cards Now at the Weatherspoon Gallery Gift Shop (WAM Shop)

I am pleased to announce that my greeting cards and notecard sets are now available at the Weatherspoon Art Museum gift shop. Manager of the shop, Kate, says she likes the modern and contemporary look of my Beetles and Flies cards, especially.

You should really go to this museum if you haven't been or haven't been lately. When I was there, I saw an incredible exhibition of Rackstraw Downes works, a showing of Matisse drawings, and a number of other great collections. What a great museum! It's no wonder that it has over 30,000 visitors a year....

You can see the gift shop in the picture below, right at the back entrance amid this beautiful architecture.

My Puzzles on Android!

I hope you can check it out!

My Puzzles are Now on the Android Market FREE

My Puzzles are Now on the Android Market FREE

The Gist:
I wanted to announce the availability of "PZL ME: Whimsical Art," the Android phone version of my art puzzles. As far as I know, I am the very first (or among the very first) contemporary artist using Android technology to promote his work. On a similar note, if you go to my website at on a phone, you will also notice that you are taken automatically to a MOBILE version of my website, which is much easier to use on a phone, but still has all of the same content!

The Details:
Hello, everyone. Most of you that know me personally know that I love gadgetry, and some of you that know me best, know that I love it tooooo much sometimes! But, Android phones these days are definitely "where it's at." These pocket computers are changing, and will continue to change, our lives. I find myself not even wanting to pick up my laptop unless I really have to. My email is easier on my phone, for example.

Many of you have used the online puzzles on my website, and I thank you! But what if I said that similar puzzles are also available now for your Android phone or tablet? This all materialized because I saw a really nicely done puzzle application on the market, and I contacted the developer (in Bulgaria). We worked out a mutually beneficial arrangement -->> My content and his Programming!

All you have to do is scan this code with your phone and it will go directly to the download page. Alternately, you can go to the Android Market and search for "Whimsical Art".

I think you'll really like these. They track how you do on the puzzles, make it easy to set the degree of difficulty, and you can also use the same application for turning any picture on your phone into a puzzle.

My biggest puzzle fan has already tried some, and she wouldn't give my phone back!

For anyone who doesn't recognize the QR barcode here, you probably don't have an Android phone, or haven't had one for long. These are scanned by the phone and automatically to go a website link, or can even contain messages! You will be seeing these pop up all over the place as more and more people equip themselves with this new technology. If you do not have an Android phone, then get one. But if you don't, and want to enjoy my puzzles, you can always just use them on my website.

I hope you enjoy.

Whimsical Artist Scott Plaster Joins DAG

Laura Farrow's "Crying Man"
Whimsical Artist Scott Plaster Joins DAG

A few weeks ago I was honored to be invited by the Director (Taj Forer) personally to join the Durham Arts Guild (DAG). Taj is an internationally recognized photographer with work all across the US and Europe. He came across my work and asked me to join, and I was thrilled!

The DAG is among the five oldest arts guilds in the entire country. They have two gallery spaces in downtown Durham. It has members from across the state.

Therese and I went to the opening of the Annual Members' Show and we were so impressed with the quality of work. I'll have a few exhibition opportunities (seasonal open shows, a juried show, and the chance to apply for a solo), and I'm really excited to be a part of such a talented, diverse group. Here were some of our favorites from the show:

Lilly Langer's "Fields of Red Clay"

Crystal Lee's "Kim" 
Dave Milkereit's "Bull City Ride"

Derrick Bryant's "First Sunset"

Detail of "Man Crying"

Deborah Younglao's "Lotus Field"

Crystal O. Hardt's "The Barefoot Girl"

Great Turnout!

What a talented group of artists!
