Under Pressure: Painting and Artist’s Reception with Adam Scott Rote
November 17 | 6:00 pm – 8:00 pmFree
It will be an unforgettable experience that will captivate the crowd with the beautiful technique of airbrush painting. Cocktails will be provided by Highland Park Whiskey.
Adam Scott Rote’s style of painting has been honed and mastered for over forty years. Learning several different hands-on techniques, Adam was later able to combine his knowledge to bring a fresh approach to the canvas by working with acrylic, gouache, watercolor pencil, airbrush, and eraser in unison.
Through an extremely labor intensive process that can require months to create, Adam takes to painting gradual build-ups like the old and modern masters, with transparent overlays, bringing forth the breathtaking originals you see today.
Adam has collaborated, painted and co-signed with Academy Award winners such as: Clint Eastwood, Robert De Niro, Dame Judi Dench, Jane Fonda, Richard Dreyfuss, Goldie Hawn Robert Downey Jr., Mel Gibson, Danny Glover and Cate Blanchett.
Angie Dickinson called him her “Warhol.”
Al Pacino said, upon signing his Scarface painting, that it was the best he had ever seen.
Recently Adam has acquired the Original Hollywood Sign Metal 1923-1978 and has begun a fine art series inspired by the famous artifacts influence in Pop Culture.
