The gallery is pleased to announce Ali Smith‘s inclusion in “HERE NOW: Six Works by Six LA Artists” at Wilding Cran Gallery (CA). Also including works by Kristin Calabrese, Noah Davis, Ian Pines, Fran Siegel, and Etienne Zack, the exhibition will open on Saturday, March 21, and run through May 2, 2015.
Smith uses the canvas as an open space of exploration; an empty landscape that serves as the starting point for investigation into abstract terrains. Smith weaves together fleeting thoughts, moments of time, the fine lines between fact and fiction and subjective desires within her canvases, which in turn present the hopeful attitude of the artist, in the face of the realities of life and experience. Smith received her MFA from California State University, Long Beach (CA), and has since had solo exhibitions in New York, Houston and Los Angeles. She has been included in numerous group shows, including those at the Laguna Art Museum, Irvine Fine Arts Center, Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock, and Riverside Museum. Her work is included in the collections of the Laguna Art Museum, Frederick R. Weisman Foundation, and Progressive. Smith is represented by Mark Moore Gallery in Culver City and Mindy Solomon Gallery in Miami, and was the recipient of the Hoff Award in 2011 and the City of Long Beach Artist Grant in 2008.
