Artist of the Month November 2019 Gove Scrivenor

Gove Scrivenor, better known for his musical prowess, is the Artworks Studio and Gallery November Artist of the Month. Gove’s art and photography of people, places and things is inspired by his musical travels. He will also perform at Artworks on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 6:30 p.m. during the Frank Brown Songwriters Festival. 

Following a stint in the Navy as a sonar Tech aboard submarines, Gove headed to Nashville to pursue a music career, recording four albums and playing on numerous sessions for many of the big names. He also did voiceovers for National Geographic. 

“I've always been an artist in one form or another and now enjoy creating the fine art and photography works that have until now been hiding away in the recesses of my mind,’’ he said. “My work incorporates photos of people, places, and things I've come across in my musical travels and are then digitally manipulated to create these pieces. I have no formal training and rely completely on my imagination to pull me through.’’
