Elizabeth Talford Scott

Goya Contemporary Gallery in Baltimore now exclusively represents the estate of Elizabeth Talford Scott, who died in 2011. Born in 1916 in South Carolina to parents who were sharecroppers, Scott from an early age created elaborate quilts that she would become known for. The artist’s work has been shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Studio Museum in Harlem, among other institutions. Her daughter, the sculptor Joyce J. Scott, is also represented by Goya Contemporary Gallery. Amy Eva Raehse, executive director and partner at Goya, said in a statement, “[Elizabeth Talford Scott’s] work remains as relevant today as it was then, and her influence on other artists is becoming more understood as the field starts to investigate and correct the curatorial and collecting omissions of the past.”
