Darden Smith “Western Skies”
Saturday, March 5, 2022
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Darden Smith’s multi-media practice spans photography, drawing, illustration, video, songs, essays, and performance. He seeks to find the humor in the mundane, the beauty in the rubble, and the grace of the overlooked detail in order to translate what he sees into something new. He’s not interested in making an exact replica of what he sees because, in his words, “We already have that.” Moving between and combining mediums allows Smith a broader horizon. As a songwriter, Smith is rooted in the Texas traditions, and as such, the power of story is prevalent in his works. In his mind, a piece, whether it’s a song, drawing or photograph, isn’t finished until it sings.
