November 11 - December 31, 2023
From Studio Comfort Texas:
“Western Skies started with Smith running around West Texas with a guitar and a Polaroid camera back in 2020/2021. He started taking pictures, writing things down, making sketches in a notebook. Once the songs started coming, more pictures started happening, more drawings…he just kept going. And out of it flowed the images, drawings, songs, videos, book and album featured in this exhibition.
Darden Smith is an Austin-based artist, photographer, poet, essayist, singer and songwriter whose multi-media practice exemplifies a deeply feeling Texas spirit tinged with humor and emotion. Through images, words and songs, Smith connects us with his powers of keen observation and minimalist expression.
Studio Comfort Texas is honored to feature a selection of Smith’s lithographs and field drawings from his most recent and broad-reaching project, WESTERN SKIES: PRINTS AND DRAWINGS. A portion of the exhibit will be exhibited concurrently across the street in the lobby and parlor of the historic Hotel Giles.”
