    Seeking Balance

    10/25/2019 – 11/26/2019

    Debra Smith’s new works contained in the exhibition Seeking Balance are the result of both an intuitive process, formed from years of working with historic textiles, and a mindful practice. Each work is an open expression, constructed in an extraordinary way - with hours of stitching, embedding layer upon layer of material. For Smith, her art is an articulation of her life. It is this dance to distract and effort to breathe where eventually everything connects and the destination is a place of beauty and clarification.

    In 2012 Smith was honored as one of the Women to Watch 2012: Focus on Fiber & Textiles from The National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC. Her work has been shown internationally over the past two decades, including solo & group exhibitions: Spring Revival, Markel Fine Art, NYC (2013), Release of Time, Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art (2012), In-between Spaces/ New work, Roswell Museum & Art Center, Roswell, NM (2010), Looking to The Left, Julie Saul Gallery, NYC (2008), Sense of Presence, Davidson Gallery, Brisbane, Australia (2004), Celestial Navigation, Vancouver, BC (2002)
