Christopher Smith: About Face

January 11 – February 29, 2020

Opening Reception: January 11 | 1:00 – 3:00 pm

About Face explores the role of drawing in portraiture, focusing in particular on the relationship between artist and sitter. Spanning three years, the drawings range from Smith’s self-portrait observing others in a waiting room to highly expressive sketches of familiar community faces.

About Face considers self-portraits, portraits of family and friends as well as more formal portraits. Some of the drawings serve as preparatory studies for paintings while others are finished works in their own right. What all of
them share, however, is that they record a likeness of someone worth remembering. They bear testimony to a deeply human sentiment, the desire to leave a mark.
