"My story telling starts with “Porch Lights for Protectors” and how blue lights at night stimulate pride
in a community. I’m displaying many new landscape photographs from the Dakotas and Minnesota.
Plus, a fresh variety of black and white photography. Metal and canvas wall art and greeting cards.
Everyone is welcome."

I took a tour through the new The Retreat at Urban Plains in South Fargo today--just south of the new Sanford Medical Center. I'm appreciative of the teams at Enclave Development, Lux Communities and T.L. Stroh Architects for showcasing my landscape photography from the state. Combining local art with a great facility is the perfect recipe for a community.

People all around the Fargo-Moorhead area began changing the white light bulbs outside their homes and apartments to blue light bulbs. All to honor the memory of Fargo Police Office Jason Moszer who was killed in the line of duty on February 11, 2016.
What inspired me was that even weeks following the funeral, neighborhoods continued to switch on their blue porch lights night-after-night. As an artist, I was intrigued by how each light cast a different glow on the doors and porches because of the home’s unique architecture. I wanted to capture this spirit of the community.
So for several nights, I took my camera and tripod and photographed the various blue-lighted homes at night and created my collage called “Porch Lights for Protectors.” While the lights may cast different shades of blue, the support from the community continues to shine into the night.

(This was such a great experience. I really enjoyed the questions from the team at Myriad Mobile. Scott Seiler)
Photographer Scott Seiler’s work is deeply rooted in North Dakota. His landscapes are culturally rich and connected to the land. They can be described as horizontal perspectives.
Seiler recently lead the employees in an engagement activity and artist talk. “The employees asked me questions that I wouldn’t have even though of- like how did I get into the situation to capture these images. It made me think about the work in new ways,” he says.
Employees were invited to create a haiku connected to Seiler’s work. “When the group was working on the poems, they would get up at and walk up to the images, concentrating on the work. They were curious and engaged,” says Seiler.
Scott Seiler’s artwork is on display at Myriad Mobile 503 7th St N Fargo, ND 58102 701-369-0633.

This was a fun photo shoot from this past weekend. Local FM Photographers had a shooting window of 48 hours to record 'life in the FM.' I'm excited that 2 of my prints were selected to hang on the NDSU Memorial Union Gallery walls: Tree Absorption and Ditch Melt. As an extra bonus, a digital slideshow of all the submissions will run on a monitor on the gallery wall.

“Made in the FM—48 Hour Photo Shoot”
Memorial Union, Main Gallery
North Dakota State University
March 3 – April 15, 2016
My print, "Lift Off" is on display
Reception, March 26, from 5p-10p at the Spirit Room, 111 Broadway, Fargo
DESCRIPTION: Join us for an evening of celebration of our winter companion, the Crow: visual art, sculpture, poetry, song and dance. The Great Winter Crow Show at the Spirit Room, held in alternate years, is a non-competitive festive exhibition. It is intended to be a mad combining of energies and visual ingredients. The theme is the crow, the blackbird, and their marvelous and malevolent associations. The crows and ravens keep us company in the wintertime and continue to remind us with their squawks and pacing that they keep a close eye on our behaviors and movements.
The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Scott Seiler, a fine art landscape photographer from Fargo, ND has been named an Artist-In-Residence by The Arts Partnership. Seiler will have his photographs on display at Myriad Mobile, a mobile app development company based in Fargo, ND from February 23 through June 23, 2016.
Seiler’s Exhibit, “Rural Perspectives—Landscapes and Architecture,” captures the often stark, occasionally surprising beauty of this horizontal landscape in which we live.
The landscapes include abandoned farmsteads or churches, poignant reminders of the rural lifestyle of a sometime recent past. Seiler’s interests in landscape and architecture stem from a childhood on the rugged, unspoiled prairie of western North Dakota. As a child, he roamed his family’s ranch, learning to appreciate the beauty of the prairie and the importance of quiet observation.
Members of the community at large are invited to view Seiler’s work, which is also for purchase, at Myriad Mobile in the Meadowlark Building (503 7th St. N., Fargo, ND) during regular business hours throughout the duration of the exhibit.
Seiler is currently a marketing and communications strategist in Fargo, ND and a partner at Gallery 4, Ltd. Visit and learn more about his work on Facebook, firstname.lastname@example.org, or www.ScottSeiler.net.
Today, members of the Fargo Moorhead Visual Artists hang their selected piece of art for the FMVA Little Show at the Essentia Atrium Gallery on South University.

The exhibit runs March 1, 2016 through April 29, 2016. #fmvisualartists #littleshow #scottseiler
