Ed Smith, a Guggenheim Fellow in sculpture and drawing, and an associate member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, will be on hand for a Meet the Artist Reception set for 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 28, featuring a 5:30 p.m. gallery talk. The reception and exhibit are open to the public and free of charge.
The drawings in the exhibition are from Smith’s “Beggars of Venice” series and will be displayed along with large and small bronze sculptures. Smith’s work includes abstract images of the human body and is primarily involved with mythic and heroic aspects of “The Artist” and man, reminding the viewer how to retain humanity in a world where oftentimes the wrong individuals are idealized.
