Scott Hinton’s photos take focus at Vigo Library 

News Release        

TERRE HAUTE — River City Art Association and the Vigo County Public Library are  featuring photography by Scott Hinton throughout May in the library at  Seventh and Poplar streets.
Hinton is a self-taught photographer and artist whose main focus is nature-inspired pictures and paintings.
Born and raised in Terre Haute, Hinton has always enjoyed taking  pictures of a wide variety of topics. After a trip to Chicago as a young boy, he was hooked on the idea of capturing a moment in time in a  photograph. Trying to catch the scene as he sees it is still the  challenge with every picture.
“There are many small things around us that we look past every day that have so much beauty in their simplicity,” he says. “That is a lot of  what I try to capture in my artwork.”
He has been taking pictures for his own enjoyment for the last 20  years, but at the suggestion of some friends last year he decided to  start sharing  his artwork. Along with joining the River City Art  Association, Scott has had a booth at the Terre Haute Downtown Farmers  Market since last summer and has started an Esty store online.
While photography is still a hobby for him, Scott hopes joining the  River City Art Association will allow him to gain experience and to  improve his abilities.
Artwork on display at the Vigo County Public Library includes “Summer  Gold” a photograph of hay bales in a Vigo County field. Two others are  “Blue Door,” a photograph taken at Rose Lawn Cemetery, and “Reflect,” a  photograph of a tree in the lake at Fowler Park.
Scott recently had pieces displayed at the Terre Haute Community  Theater and currently has several pieces at Gaslight Artist Colony in  Marshall, Ill.
Scott can be reached at Scott3Hinton at gmail dot com and a selection of his  artwork can be viewed at
Prospective River City Art Association members are invited to attend  meetings on the second Tuesday of each month in the meeting room of the  MCL Cafeteria at The Meadows shopping center. For more information,  visit or contact RCAA president Todd Stokes at  812-232-0048.
