Biography  
Gilbert Smith


The following obituary is from the Chilkit Valley News, of Haines, Alaska, May 30, 2002

Famed landscape artist dies at New Mexico home
By Steve Williams

Gil Smith, the Chilkat Valley's pre-eminent landscape artist, died Tuesday in Las Cruces, New Mexico of natural causes.  He was 88.

Smith lived in Haines from l940 to l988, when he and wife Janis Marston moved to Glenwood, New Mexico after he was partially paralyzed by a severe stroke.  He had been living in a Las Cruces nursing home since September.

Smith, whose realistic oil paintings of the Chilkat Valley hang in many local homes, is remembered as a resourceful homesteader with a taste for solitude and a dedication to craft.
