    Artist Gary Smith creates abstract objects out of found and recycled materials—such as old barn joists and repurposed construction debris—and combines them with natural wood harvested from his five acre property in rural Chester County. Smith shapes the wood, burns the wood, seals it, cuts into it with common tools and seals it again and again to preserve it.

     

    This juxtaposition of otherwise ordinary mediums are displayed in unexpected compositions that bring new life to formerly discarded and forgotten fragments. This exhibition presents new and recent works created over the course of nearly twenty years, while also paying homage to Smith’s career as chief preparator in The Galleries at Moore from 1987 – 2012. Opening reception June 14, 5 - 8 pm.
