Smith Named November Artist
The featured artist at the Dorset Village Library during the month of November will be Chris Smith. The public is invited to meet him at an opening reception on Saturday, November 7, from 11 to 1 p.m. Refreshments will be served. Smith studied Fine Art at The Rhode Island School of Design where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in 1990. He spent his junior year in Rome, Italy, travelling to the former Yugoslavia, Greece and Istanbul, Turkey. He considers his travel experiences important to his development as an artist. About his work, he says, “Art is unique, in that there is no textbook. It is ultimately up to the artist to determine what is right and what is wrong. There is a huge struggle there, yet the rewards are great, a lot like life itself.” All works will be for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit the Library.
