    Exhibit dates: April 21st – May 13th, 2017

    Details:
    Charlotte Smith has presented more than 24 solo exhibitions over the last 20 years. On April 21st CAMIBAart Gallery is proud to present the first solo exhibition of Charlotte Smith’s artworks in almost 2 years, with a brand-new body of work fresh from the studio.  

    Continuing her passion for layers and piles of paint, her exhibit Color Full exemplifies all that is so seductive about her artwork. The show is filled with movement and layer upon layer of bright colors organized in her identifiable style. On the surface, many of the artworks in this exhibit may be reminiscent of some of her work from the mid-2000s–look deeper and notice that they are emboldened with the knowledge and history of her work between then and now, exposing a fresh perspective. Enter this carnival of color with open eyes and you’ll see that Charlotte Smith continues to produce works that are exploratory and fresh!    

    Join us for an uplifting and whimsical exhibit full of color and movement!

    In Her Own Words:  “Painting and making art is a meditative activity for me. Playing with paint and other materials is more interesting to me than creating images."

    About the Artist: 
    Charlotte Smith graduated with a Masters of Fine Arts in 1999, and has since pursued an art practice best defined as an exploration into pure abstraction. Building her paintings with layers of carefully placed drips, drops, and brushstrokes, she has established a signature aesthetic, all the while continuing to create fresh works that push boundaries.

    Seasoned contemporary art collectors are familiar with and supportive of Charlotte Smith’s work. As a result of this support, her artworks are included in many prestigious private and public collections including the Museum of Southeast Texas, Art Museum of South Texas, and William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital. In addition, Neiman Marcus has over 17 of Smith’s artworks in their collection, displayed in locations around the country. Smith’s work is included in several books including Texas Artists Today (2010), Texas Abstract (2014), and Global Corporate Collections (2015).
