TAG is pleased to present Rhonda J. Smith’s solo show, Seasons of Grace
Smith is a practicing artist and retired art professor who lives near Keedysville, MD. She uses non-toxic inks and a non-traditional approach of mounting her large-scale linoleum prints to archival boards.
Says Smith, “Just prior to the COVID outbreak, while in New York City, I encountered a reliquary figure from medieval Europe in a gallery. After I returned home I discovered that this sculpture continued to be part of my thoughts. Out of all the work I saw, it was this medieval sculpture that most intrigued me. Perhaps it was because this object contained something that was meant to empower it and imbue it with significance beyond the sculpture itself. I love the idea that art can empower, protect, or heal.“
The show runs from June 4 through June 27. Smith will be at The Artists Gallery on June 5 for First Saturday and will host a lecture and demonstration of her process on June 17 at 6 p.m.
Work by other TAG artists will also be shown.
Gallery hours are noon to 8 on Fridays and Saturdays and noon to 4 on Sundays. Admission is free.
