William Smith, (Philadelphia, PA) while well known for his paintings, many of which incorporate book structures or work directly on book pages, also creates exceptional prints. His seductive landscapes capture a strong sense of mood and place; the addition of actual book pages adds tactility. His etchings, by virtue of being printed on paper, delve deeper into the objectness of the book and its relationship to image.
Smith has shown his work at The Delaware Art Museum, DE; The Palmer Museum, PA; Lancaster Museum of Art, PA; The Freedman Gallery, Albright College, PA; Noyes Museum, NJ; Long Beach Museum of Art, CA. He is the recipient of Fellowship Awards from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and The Pew Charitable Trust.
