2018 Lifetime Achievement Award in the Visual Arts
Exhibition Dates: September 7 – November 3, 2018
Art League Houston (ALH) is pleased to present the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award in the Visual Arts exhibition: Journey to the Brightest Star by George Smith. The exhibition focuses on work made by the artist during the past four decades and features drawing, sculpture and printmaking. The works in the exhibition reflects Smith’s lifelong fascination with synthesizing three fundamental sources; the sense of scale and the intuitive look of Abstract Expressionism; the flat-faced industrial geometry of Minimal Art; and the expressive symbols and geometry inspired by the Dogon peoples of West Africa. The exhibition opens Friday, September 7, 2018 with a reception from 6 to 9 PM, and will remain on view through November 3, 2018. A limited edition 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award in the Visual Arts catalog will be available in conjunction with the exhibition featuring texts by Dr. William Camfield, Phillip E. Collins, Mel Edwards, James Harithas, Tierney Malone, Tierrie S. Rouse-Rosario, George Smith and Dr. Walter Widrig.
