Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of “Differences in Moments: Recent Paintings by David Smith,” which will run Sept. 27 to Nov. 9. An opening reception will take place Friday, Sept. 27 from 6-8 pm. The exhibit features Peacham-based artist David Smith’s compelling landscape works in oil, in which he explores the possibilities of a scene through his imagination – and he invites the viewer to do the same.

“I’m not a storyteller,” Smith explains, “but I sometimes consider myself a fiction painter. I use fictional visual images from memory. Different imagined scenes incorporated into paintings to portray a truth.”

Smith has worked with children making public art, and he’s been a scenic designer and painter in Philadelphia, a graphic designer in New York City and Vermont, and an architectural and woodworking designer and builder in Vermont—where he has lived since 1974.

Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery is located at 86 Falls Road, Shelburne. More information is available at www.fsgallery.com.
