Art, Inside Out!
This summer, The Iva Smith Gallery is so honored to present the artwork of three great creative spirits.
Our two featured artists, John Horbacz of As the Crow Flies Artworks of Pillar Point, NY and Richard Atkinson, best-known as the banjo player and father of the Atkinson Family Band, are outsider artists--artists whose creative voice rings loud and clear without the customary benefit of formal training. Paul Saphier, in contrast, was nurtured in the arts from a young age. His art was created in the context of a decades-long struggle with Multiple Sclerosis--a battle he waged up to his 70th year. The artwork in the Gallery this summer pays tribute to the indomitable creative spirit!
R. Paul Saphier
Works done in the North Country and in Nova Scotia, Canada. Also, many of the 18 works featured in our publication, The Art of R. Paul Saphier by art historian Eliot Rowlands. Paul's Sacred Geometry Mandala works will also be on display.
Dreams vs. Reality
This show is about an art passion that seeks a reality... painted dreams and visions, Gothic driftwood sculptures--and more!
Reach for the Light
The beauty of nature and the wild, landmarks and memories form the content of Dick's arresting pantings that, like his music, communicate a deep shared connection to the North Country's natural beauty, history and traditions.
