Victoria Smith: It Seemed Right
Victoria Smith’s It Seemed Right is an attempt by the artist to visually catalog several of her personal relationships. For her project at the Masur, she created symbolic representations of people, events, and objects, as well as herself, which chart the ebb and flow of how she deals with people. This soul-searching work is cathartic for Smith and will likely be for visitors as well. If you were presented as a single image, perhaps resembling a coat of arms or family crest, how would your personage and conduct be manifested? Smith’s many exhibition credits include shows at the Upstairs Gallery (Monroe, LA), Rumo’s (West Monroe, LA), Parlor House (Monroe, LA), University of Southern Mississippi (Hattiesburg, MS), and Agora Borealis (Shreveport, LA). In 2019 Smith will show with the Bossier Arts Council as their Emerging Artist. She and her sister, Mashall Smith, are gaining renown in Northeast Louisiana with their mobile screen printing shop Pint Sized Printers.
