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. This fully illustrated exhibition catalogue features an essay by eminent writer and art historian Avis Berman based upon extended interviews with the artist.
