Clarice Smith: Recollections of a Life in Art
Clarice Smith: Recollections of a Life in Art is a retrospective of this distinguished contemporary painter’s signature subjects. Clarice Smith's work moves easily among diverse subjects, among them The Garden, Florals, Still Life, Landscapes, Equines, Screens, and Figures, each with its own rich visual traditions. Drawing upon her deep knowledge of art history, as well as a keen eye for the directly observed, the artist produces immensely fulfilling paintings that gratify the eye and also stimulate reflection.
Works have been selected to present a concentrated, yet complete, overview of Smith’s signature subjects, as well as the evolution of her artistic vision over more than three and a half decades. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated publication, featuring an essay by eminent writer and art historian Avis Berman based upon extended interviews with the artist. The exhibition will also feature an audio tour on the same format, which will allow visitors to listen to Clarice Smith discussing her own works.
