Scott Ransom is the featured artist for the concert series poster. He considered himself for the most part to be a self-taught artist and believes his gift and love of art comes from his father, Ron Ransom. He took art classes growing up and studied art and design at Georgia Southern and the University of Georgia but his career took him in a different direction. He tries to paint what he sees and prefers to work in watercolors and oils. Scott has continued to paint and draw as a hobby and has exhibited his work around town. He and his wife Becky of 37 years live in Marietta and have 2 children and one grandchild.
