The Sergott Contemporary Art Alliance (SCAA) is founded on the bedrock of enthusiasm shown by the director Thomas Sergott who actively searches the world for artistic talent. A collector for many years, he is guided by his connection to the creative energy and finesse of those he represents. He has a honed eye and an intimate awareness of the painted image. Shortly after retiring as a plastic surgeon, he received his MBA with a specialization in entrepreneurship.

SCAA, based in Rancho Santa Fe, CA is a multifaceted gallery which represents emerging and mid career artists. SCAA is ideally situated on the border of the rich vein of untapped artistic talent which runs between San Diego and Baja Mexico.

We focus our public exhibitions on showing extensive works by our artists so the viewer can gain a more in-depth education of each painter. We take full advantage of the trends for online sales with a superlative website and our gallery has been selected to participate in the new Fine Art Site sponsored by Amazon. SCAA also maintains a full schedule of national Art Fairs where we can develop new long relationships with clients and provide them with a quality buying experience. We also enjoy the interaction with other galleries, artists and art professionals.

SCAA also participates in community outreach programs such as the Mainly Mozart Patrons Concert and Gallery Tour, to be held at our Gallery. We maintain a growing supportive and philanthropic roll for the greater San Diego Art Community.

  • Mauricio Garrido

    Biography : The world of the visual artist Mauricio Garrido is surrealist, exuberant, complex and dark all at the same time. The majority of the time, his work has been categorized as neo-Baroque and takes on various forms of expression, such as sculpture, collage, textiles and video art. His work reviews codes of representation throughout the history of art, and is particularly centered on the figure as allegory as a method of synthesized narration. The idea of found materials has been present as a way of transitioning towards an existence of a visual operandi. His work is made from the collection of found papers in the diverse regions of the world where he has travelled especially to find them. Recently, those papers were collected by the world and his art took the form of a trip. His artwork has been exhibited in Europe, Asia and Latin America and can be found in important public and private collections. He is currently preparing a monumental showing of his work at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chile (MAC Quinta Normal).

  • Hung Viet Nguyen

    Biography : Artist Hung Viet Nguyen was born in Vietnam in 1957. He studied Biology at Science University in Saigon, Vietnam, then transitioned to working as an illustrator, graphic artist and designer since settlement in the U.S. in 1982. He developed his artistry skills independently, studying many traditional Eastern and Western forms, media and techniques. Nguyen’s complex, labor intensive investigations of oil paint reveal a methodical mastery of texture. While portions of Nguyen’s work suggest the influence of many traditional art forms including woodblock prints, Oriental scroll paintings, ceramic art, mosaic, and stained glass, his ultimate expression asserts a contemporary pedigree. Nguyen’s paintings have been exhibited at galleries, cultural art centers, and museums, juried by museum curators [ Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Laguna Art Museum (LAM), Museum of Contemporary Los Angeles (MOCA), Museum of Latin America Art (MoLAA), Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA), Riverside Art Museum (RAM), Torrance Art Museum (TAM), UCLA Hammer Museum of Art ].

    Detailed Description : “My world of Art has given me a life with deep valleys and huge plateaus. Often I uncover ideas and dreams never possible without the constant urge to attempt new avenues on paper, canvas and wood. The unknown world has given me a purpose to create; to explore and to deliver. I want to try new techniques and learn from what works and what doesn’t. The adventure of art is my gift to myself. Pablo Picasso said, ‘The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away!’ Life is as busy and complicated as I want to make it so I’ve decided to make the time and the effort to just paint. The more I paint; the more I learn. Some days are dreadful while others shower me with inner peace.” – Artist Statement
