Gregory Scott blurs the lines between painting, photography, and video to create humorous and often challenging works of art. In these hybrid artworks, Scott seamlessly blends imbedded computer screens with still photographic and/or painted images. The result is a series of complex, narrative compositions that, although entertaining, explore a range of issues, from perception and illusion to identity and loneliness. His works combine entertainment and art, making the viewer reconsider the traditional role of art within the context of modern technology.

Bad Guys, Good Eats! Pop-Up Dinner at Restaurant IPO
Chef and 225 contributor Jay D. Ducote and Chef Chris Wadsworth hosted the Bad Guys, Good Eats! dinner at Restaurant IPO Wednesday night. The dinner was themed around famous movie villains, pairing cocktails and ales with plates of food resembling famous baddies like The Joker, Lord Voldemort, Hannibal Lector, and many others. The highlights of the night were the three middle courses—a black bean soup laced with blood sausage to signify Lord Voldemort, a brace of coneys on black eyed peas resembling Sauron, and lamb medallions atop a fava bean puree to pay homage to the famous favorite of Hannibal Lector.
