Dolph Smith in Interactive Artifact

 

Smith Fire Pole _1

For those of us already familiar with the work of Dolph Smith, our first introduction to his work may have been when it was featured in (and on the cover of) The Penland Book of Handmade Books published by Lark in 2004. Or perhaps we have lucky enough to have taken a class from Dolph at one of the many workshop centers he teaches at each year. Or perhaps we have had the pleasure of exhibiting side by side with Dolph. Or had the honor of exhibiting his work. I have had the great fortune to have experienced all of the above.

 

One of the best things about knowing Dolph is having the opportunity to introduce his work others. Such pleasures are the driving force behind many of my curatorial efforts. So it is with great delight that I once again feature Dolph’s work at Abecedarian Gallery, this time in Interactive Artifact, which is on display through August 6.

 

His work is sheer delight, filled with humor and the wisdom that comes from decades of working with objects, of going to the studio and making things.
