Gary Ernest Smith grew up in Oregon where his interest in art began
at an early age as he sketched their farm and surrounding land. In high school, he began doing commission work for people in his community. Gary has traveled extensively with his sketch pad and paintbox as well as painting and sculpting in his home studio.
From his self-taught early years all the way through fine arts training, Gary creates a very personal and narrative style. “I hope to present a unique perspective on the state of rural America.” Gary’s paintings remind us of what is beautiful, good and true about the land.
Gary is represented by the Overland Gallery of Fine Art in
