Full Circle Art Show at Doubting Thomas Gallery – foto by Smith

Have three pieces in the Full Circle Art Show curated by Chelsie Michelle Barile at the Doubting Thomas Gallery.

I’m slowly reintegrating myself into the art scene. Before Lady and I split the country in 2006 for three years, I was a recognized player — one of Cleveland’s bad boys of art. But it’s amazing how quickly I became marginal in our absence; none of the younger crop of artists knows me. They were probably in art school last time I had a newspaper review; we had 6 newspaper articles in 2006 — seems if you want a lot of good press, all you have to do is leave the country.

Had 6 pieces in a great show last year and one piece in another. Will have a piece in a show this May, and I’m setting up a major show probably titled The Two Dead Smiths Two Live Smiths Show sometime between December and March which should open a few folks eyes. It’ll be dead mom Mother Dwarf (1926-2005), suicided brother Cat (1957-1987), live wife Lady K (1972) and me (1946).

Lady and I’ve decided to self-publish my memoir within the next six months as well, so this could be a good 12 months creatively. The memoir which covers my 1st 60 years of strife is titled

Stations of the Lost
a true tale of
armed robbery, stolen cars, outsider art, mutant poetry,
underground publishing, robbing the cradle, and leaving the country
