Event Description

Neil Smith painted what he felt in abstract forms. Smith was first and foremost a humanitarian. The span of his work in this exhibit begins in the 1970s when he lived in The San Francisco Bay Area of California, and shows a man who was always exploring. As he grew older, his work displayed more concern with how the world operated, especially when he vehemently disagreed with the way the world showed up; he calls on the observer, as well as himself, to question beliefs by inserting words into his art, thus compelling thoughtfulness on part of the viewer.  His later work took on a minimalist perspective.
 
The plight of Native Americans and the black man is a subject of many of his paintings. Yet, his emotional range included serenity, shown here in the painting titled “Cathedral.”
