The Vail Valley Art Guild will host its First Friday Exhibit and Reception at the Minturn Gallery featuring photography by Scott Pope.

Pope began his photography work as a college student in the mid-1970s while attending the University of Oklahoma, where he worked for the school newspaper.

With the advent of digital cameras and Photoshop, Pope renewed his interest in photography and views himself foremost as an image maker. He is semi-retired and has lived in the Vail Valley for a little more than three years.
