The Smiths: Lowcountry Family of Artists
The Smiths: A Lowcountry Family of Artists presents works from oil painter Betty Anglin Smith and her triplets -- Tripp Smith, a black-and-white photographer, and Jennifer Smith Rogers and Shannon Smith Hughes, oil painters like their mother.
Though the Smiths have traveled the world to paint and photograph, it's their home -- Charleston, South Carolina, and the surrounding Lowcountry -- that inspires most of their work. They have been capturing the Lowcountry's coastal wetlands, historic architecture, and energetic spirit on both canvas and film for many years.
During their years of creating art, the Smiths' group of collectors, admirers, and friends has become quite large. For this book, a few from this group -- including Charleston's longtime mayor Joe Riley, artist Rhett Thurman, and gallery director Leigh Limehouse -- explain what the Smiths' art means to them and to Charleston. In addition, local author Mary Alice Monroe has written the book's forward, touching on the Smiths' distinct use of color.
