The BCK Fine Arts Gallery @Montauk is pleased to present its third exhibition of the season, and its first show of the works of sculptor Ed Smith. In “Reflections: Recent Works by Ed Smith,” the artist presents a collection of bronze torsos, small bronze figures, small terra cotta figures and torsos along with monographs and drawings, depicting both his process and versatility.
Throughout his career, Ed Smith has been known for his portrayal of the “heroic ideal.” His inspiration is drawn from the Classical Period of Greece, the Golden Age; a time period which drew its heroes and code of conduct, in part, from the writings of Homer.
Smith, sculptor and teacher, is currently gallery director, director of Marist Venice Biennale Program and professor of art at Marist College. He has also been selected by National Archaeological Museum, Athens, for a special project, the results of which have, unfortunately, been delayed by the pandemic.
The opening reception for the show is Friday, August 21, 4 to 6:30 p.m. The show remains on view through September 10. The gallery is at 87 South Euclid Avenue, Montauk. Visit bckfineartsgallery.com for details.
