Artlink is pleased to announce the hire of Exhibitions Director Lynette Scott. Scott has extensive experience in gallery exhibitions, design and marketing within the arts.
“On behalf of Artlink’s Board of Directors, we are extremely excited with the addition of Lynette to the staff at Artlink” said Ron Dick, Chairman of Artlink Board of Directors. “Lynette has displayed great insight and leadership as a member of our volunteer Board, and we’re thrilled for the full-time transition to the Artlink team. We are certain her exhibition, gallery, design and marketing experience will build on the successes of the Artlink legacy.”
A native of northeast Ind., Scott received her bachelor’s degree from Huntington University in theater design and technology. Subsequently, she studied art, interior architecture and design at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. While living in northern Calif., Scott worked as Assistant to the Director at the studio of Bay Area artist, Ira Yeager, assisting with the curation, design and installation of studio exhibitions as well as the retrospective exhibition Ira Yeager: Process and Progression at COPIA in Napa, Calif.
Continuing her professional career as an experiential designer, Scott founded an independent design studio working collaboratively with clients to create meaningful, branded experiences.
“Good art connects us to our senses, body and mind, and through shared experiences, art connects us to our community,” said Scott. “Through art we can experience a range of differing perceptions, ideas and beliefs that challenge us to think, engage and act. My hope, is that the quality and range of the Artlink’s exhibitions and programming will continue to grow, and that together we can build a sustainable creative community.”
Following her return to northeast Ind. in 2015, Scott served on the Artlink Board as well as chair of the organization’s marketing committee in 2018. With her background in experiential design and marketing, Scott is passionate about empowering artists and connecting with the community through art.
Scott officially began her new role May 27. She is married to Josh Scott, and they have two young children.
