R. Scott Colglazier grew up in southern Indiana, attended college and graduate school, and then spent most of his adult life as a clergyperson. His doctoral work was focused on the relationship of literature and religion. He served some of the most prestigious churches in America, including University Christian Church in Fort Worth, Texas, The Riverside Church in New York City, and First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. While at First Church he established an outstanding program that accented the role of the arts in the spiritual life. Additionally, he has curated several exhibitions of paintings and photographs. Throughout his work as a clergyperson he was an outspoken spokesman for a progressive, open and liberal understanding of faith. He creatively brought together art and the human quest for spiritual consciousness, especially using poetry, literature, film and the visual arts. He retired in 2019 in order to work full-time as an artist. He now resides in Bloomington Indiana, living steps from Indiana University, and spends his days working in his studio. As an “outsider” artist, Colglazier brings an unbridled enthusiasm to his painting and enjoys sharing it with others.
