Gregory Smith

North Pownal, Vermont native Gregory Smith began his sculpture studies with Isaac Witkin and Brower Hatcher at Bennington College, and later studied with Paul Aschenbach at the University of Vermont. Smith has worked with wood, clay and bronze, but his media of choice is welded steel and more recently, copper. His sculptures are at once both whimsical and entirely serious, reserved yet resonant. His use of line creates a sense of solidity while letting the space breathe, setting up a dialogue between the line and the negative space; his use and application of color give an added sense of depth and dimension. His work has been exhibited at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York and included nine times in the annual outdoor sculpture exhibit at Chesterwood, the estate of Daniel Chester French in Stockbridge, Mass. He has received numerous awards for his work including the Richard and Hinda Rosenthal Award for outdoor sculpture from the Silvermine Guild in New Canaan, CT, and three awards from the Mohawk - Hudson Regional Exhibition in Albany, NY. An exhibit "Gregory Smith - Wall Sculpture: The First Twenty-five Years", was presented by the Bennington Museum in 2005. Smith received the 'Best in Show' award at the 14th Annual National Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition in Charleston, S.C. in 2019.
