As a Studio and Gallery
We believe the visual arts enrich everyone’s life.
We are a gathering place for anyone who believes in the creative process, whether you gain inspiration by enjoying the creative expression of others or exploring your own creative path.
We are a Studio . . . offering a wide range of scheduled and private art classes for children, families and adults. At Smith Studio and Gallery you only need 2 people to schedule your own private art class or party . . . you pick the day, time and art activity. Our goal is for everyone to have a positive experience. You might not leave with a great work of art, however you will leave more knowledgeable about the creative process, a smile on your face, a keepsake and fond memories of time spent with friends and family.
We are a Gallery . . . featuring original artwork by David Smith, owner/resident artist, and represent over 20 extraordinary 2-D and 3-D regional artists located throughout Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin. We continually are on the lookout for current, innovative artists, who may not normally show in the area, to invite into our gallery for two month solo exhibition in our upper gallery.
