Doug Scott (CD, QJM, BA)
Quickly singled out for his artistic talents, he was selected by his school at age eight to attend art classes at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts under the direction of Arthur Lismer, one of the renowned ‘Group of Seven’ artists. In 1951 he completed a commercial art course at Sir George Williams College, Montreal and attended art classes at Algonquin College, Ottawa. Scott was commissioned by the External Affairs Department to paint twelve large murals in the VIP terminal of CFB Ottawa on the occasion of the Queen’s visit to open the 1973 Commonwealth Prime Ministers Conference. Other Doug Scott murals are located at Dartmouth’s Shearwater Aviation Museum, the Totem Lounge in Comox, BC, Key Largo Lounge in Sackville, the Tapered Edge in Bedford, the C & PO Mess at Stadacona, and the Interpretation Centre, Fisherman’s Cove. He is well known for his coastal landscapes. His paintings and murals are in private and commercial collections in France, South Africa, Australia and British Columbia.
