Mavis Smith: Hidden Realities
Michener Art Museum
January 14 – May 20, 2012

You’re strolling down a busy sidewalk, absorbed in your thoughts. Suddenly someone walking the other way glances in your direction, you glance back, and your reverie is broken. Two souls meet, briefly, then the moment passes, and without breaking stride you each walk on.

The paintings of Mavis Smith are about that moment, hinting at a narrative, yet remaining intentionally elusive. Mavis Smith: Hidden Realities will be on view at the James A. Michener Art Museum January 14 to May 20, 2012 in the Fred Beans Gallery.
