Looking Back

Our friends over at The Public Trust have a new show going up tomorrow. Looking Back: An exhibition of new work by jeremy Smith. If you are out and about, swing through and check it. The reception will take place from 6-9pm.

About the Artist
B. Islip, New York. Smith has quietly been on the rise as a self-made cartoonist after contributing his Ropeburn strip to Art Prostitute Issue 05, which he continued to do until the publications hiatus in 2007. That year he received a grant from the Xeric Foundation which he produced his first printed collection of Ropeburn comics. The work is the culmination of years of keen observation within the service industry and everyday life.

The recurring cast of characters illuminate the meaning found in daily interactions, through humor and with a sardonic wit. In addition to his contribution to Art Prostitute, Smith has also contributed work to the Portland Mercury and is currently pursuing a career as a nationally syndicated cartoonist. Jeremy Smith lives and works in Denton, Texas.

About the Exhibition
Looking Back will feature a new body of Smith's small scale drawings and original strips, as well as those from the first Ropeburn publication and Art Prostitute.

Opening Reception
