Jakob Dwight will be signing copies of the catalog for "Disguise: Masks and Global African Art", (published by the Seattle Art Museum in association with Yale University Press, New Haven and London, 2015) which includes his essay and works currently on view at the gallery in "Human (Re)Sources". A limited number of books will be available. Please email StephenSmithFineArt(at)gmail(dot)com to reserve your copy.
The gallery will open at 11am. The talks will begin promptly at 1pm. This weekend is your last opportunity to see our current exhibitions, "Human (Re)Sources" and "Macondo/Mar-A-Lago".
The gallery will be closed beginning March 20 while we install our next exhibition, "Flat Granny and Me: A Procession in My Mind" by Jenny Fine. Jenny's photography and installation will feature live performances April 7, 8, 14, and 15, and an artist talk April 9.
