A retrospective exhibition of signature works by an accomplished contemporary painter.

In her 40-year career as a painter, Clarice Smith has had numerous solo exhibitions at museums and galleries in the United States and abroad, including shows in the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Israel. Her work can be described as both optically real and occasionally impressionistic; this selective retrospective highlights the artist’s diverse subjects, each with their own rich visual traditions, including the Garden, Still Life, Landscapes, Equines, Screens, and the Figure. Drawing upon her deep knowledge of art history, as well as a keen eye for the directly observed, the artist creates paintings that gratify the eye and stimulate reflection.

The exhibition will feature an audio tour that will allow visitors to listen to Clarice Smith discussing her own works. A fully illustrated publication is also available, featuring an essay by art historian Avis Berman, based upon extended interviews with the artist.
