‘Paintings For The Future’ Opening Reception

Artist Skylar Smith has been working on a series of pieces that speak to thinking forward and thinking higher. During the pandemic, she used materials that she had around the house to start a series of meditative and reflective pieces to soothe herself at the beginning of the lockdown. Since then, she has begun to explore how those materials can shift and be used in ways that they haven’t before and how other materials can be added to further her idea of painting to a new future. See 20 new works by Smith at the fifteenTWELVE gallery in Portland. There will be drinks and snacks.
