COLIN SMITH & DON PELL
Friday, March 18, 5 – 8 pm
The gallery is pleased to host a Mad March Match-up on Friday, the 18th, when the wicked pen of Colin Smith meets the master of metal and glass, Don Pell.
Spawned in Saint John, raised in art school, Colin Smith received his first transfusion of ink while nesting along the shores of the Saint John River. He currently puts pen to paper in his Florenceville studio, where he continues to place neuroses before beauty.
Twisted, turned and gone with the wind, Don Pell pokes at the creases of our imagination with those wonderfully fiendish whirligigs that arise out of the studio fires in St. Isidore de Bellevue, Saskatchewan.
