CLIFFORD SMITH: SPATIAL IMPACT
MARCH 15-APRIL 9, 2011
This is an exhibition of new paintings, including the artist’s well-known “ocean fields” as well as urban and rural landscapes. Seemingly photographic, Smith’s images are revealed on direct observation to be sensuously painted, reflecting the artist’s attention to texture and surface.

Ocean Fields: Clifford Smith Paintings
JANUARY 23-APRIL 25, 2009
“This group of exhibitions and artists truly reveals a panorama of creative vision as they express the universality of water and liquid for poetic interpretation,” says Museum Director Bruce Winslow.
Clifford Smith creates spectacular large-scale paintings depicting the surface of water. Smith says of his work, "When I am painting water, I am thinking of how it tastes and feels, of expressing my cerebral response to it, instead of just a visual one."
