The photo of us above, bottom, was taken in May of 2015 at the Andrea Rosen Gallery. My book was published in 2015 by the London-based Bernard Jacobson Gallery. http://www.jacobsongallery.com/
A blog site called Unlocking Litchfield recently ran a very nice visit with us titled, 'At Home with John Scofield.' They began their story by saying: John Scofield is and artist and designer living in Sharon, CT with his wife Bartley Johnstone, and their daughter, Evie. John’s folding music stand is in the permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
You can find their photos and interview at: http://unlockinglitchfield.com/2016/05/home-john-scofield/
Here are some of the lovely photos taken by Lora Warnick. The well-written story is by Beverley Canepari.
