BIOGRAPHY

Regina Scully lives and paints in the Holy Cross neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana. Scully was born in Norfolk, Virginia and received her B.F.A. in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design and her M.F.A. in Painting from University of New Orleans. 

Scully’s current solo exhibition at the New Orleans Museum of Art opened April 6th and will be on view through October 8, 2017. This innovative exhibition, titled Inner Journeys, displays Scully’s paintings alongside Japanese landscape paintings from the Nanga period, encouraging a unique and open conversation about the connections and relationships between bodies of work from two very different times and places. 

Scully’s paintings are in private and public collections including the Microsoft Art Collection (2010, 2013), the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation Collection, the Capital One Art Collection, and the New Orleans Museum of Art (2014, 2016). A catalog of paintings and works on paper with an accompanying essay by Dan Cameron was published in summer 2015.
