Free with Museum Admission

Join us as artist, author, curator, and gardener Paul Scott discusses his artistic practice, which includes provocative reinterpretations of 19th-century transferware. Scott will pay special attention to the work he produced for the 2024 Shelburne Museum exhibition Confected, Borrowed & Blue: Transferware by Paul Scott. This show is the first in a planned series of “interventions,” in which contemporary artists respond to Shelburne Museum’s outstanding collections. Plates, platters, and jugs created by Scott—including a special commission exploring the role of the sugar industry in the Museum’s founding—are displayed alongside historical ceramics in the Variety Unit, sparking dialogue between past and present.

Talk will last approximately 45 to 60 minutes, followed by an audience Q & A. The Museum will remain open until 7:30 p.m., allowing attendees time to visit the exhibition after the talk.
