Hal Scroggy (1921-2018) is known as one of Ohio’s most accomplished watercolor painters. His work has been exhibited nationwide in galleries and shows, and featured in books and advertising.
Hal was discovered by artist Roy Wilhelm while still in grade school. He studied with Wilhelm, who helped Hal get accepted to Cleveland Institute of Art. After serving in WWII,
he worked in illustration, television, film and as a photographer and art director at B.F. Goodrich.
Hal chose to pursue art full time.He began serious impressionistic watercolor painting. His philosophy was “I paint adjectives rather than nouns”. He regularly traveled to naturalistic locations in the US and abroad for subject matter, and developed a widely respected, immediately recognizable art style. He is a founding member of Ohio Watercolor Society, and was named a signature member of the American Watercolor Society. He also was an early member of Whiskey Painters of America. In 2018, Hal received the J. Brower Lifetime Achievement Award from the Ohio Watercolor Society.
