MiLinda Smith: November artist in residence at The Lab at North Spokane Library

Posted on October 17, 2017 at 6:00 am

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM

We’re hosting four local artists in residence at The Lab at North Spokane Library this fall. Each month, the artist in residence provides hands-on learning opportunities for community participation and also creates art in The Lab.

Everyone is encouraged to stop by to see the displays of artist’s artwork changing each month and meet each artist. You can have a conversation about the artist’s process, the artwork currently under creation, and art in general while the artist works.

MILINDA SMITH: NOVEMBER ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

MiLinda Smith is passionate about the environment and finding new ways to assist with conservation efforts. This becomes evident in her art as she plays with the push and pull of oil and water, and life and death. MiLinda’s oil paintings and mixed-media creations work to help audiences develop a deeper awareness of the problems occurring in today’s oceans.

Published pieces of MiLinda’s art include Angelic, an acrylic on canvas Celtic piece, which was included in the 30th anniversary edition of The Wire Harp (2014), and two oil on canvas pieces, Ignorance and I Stand with You, published in the 10th edition of One World (Spring 2017), a social justice publication.
