Artwork by Quarry Hill Resident Featured in Poetry Month Rockland Show
CAMDEN, Me., April 7, 2014 – An original work of art by Quarry Hill resident Ronald Smith was recently selected for the 2014 Poetry Month Rockland juried art show and is among numerous works included in the show, on display at Rockland Public Library through April 30.
Smith’s Windows is a three-dimensional assemblage made of lobster-trap wire and other discarded materials found on long walks near his home and elsewhere in New England.
Smith said he was inspired to submit the piece to the juried exhibition when he learned that the theme for the show would be “Windows, Mirrors, Doors,” focusing on works that represent various “ways of looking.”
The amateur artist said his interest in assemblages was sparked by the works of American artists Joseph Cornell (1903–1972) and Louise Nevelson (1899–1988). Over the past two decades, Smith has crafted dozens of works and been featured in group and one-man shows at Quarry Hill, in Belfast, Me., and in Winchester, Mass.
