Biography from Sullivan Goss - An American Gallery (Artists R-Z):
Jack Smith was born in 1950.  At age 16, he began his training at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan before moving to Ohio to attend Columbus College of Art and Design.  He also studied for a brief time at the Instituto de Allende, at San Miguel de Allende, GTO, Mexico.  He now resides in New Mexico.  Reflecting a profound knowledge of art history and and an alchemist's sense of the painting craft, contemporary painter Jack Smith has forged his own place amongst contemporary portraitists working in America.

Jack Smith recently received a Past Achievement Award from the Peter and Madeleine Martin Foundation for the Creative Arts, following an important solo exhibition titled, Jack Smith: The Taos Portraits at the Harwood Museum of Art at the University of New Mexico in 2004.  The exhibition featured fifty portraits of Taos, New Mexico residents, executed between 2000 and 2003.  The series was intended as a visual biography of this unique artistic community at the turn of the century.  Smith's subjects range from the famous to the infamous -- including artists, writers, art patrons, Native peoples, and street peoples.

He recently commissioned a number of private commissions for Sullivan Goss – An American Gallery in Santa Barbara, California.  In addition to his continuing national exhibition schedule, Jack Smith has initiated a new project to be published by the Michigan State University Press entitled, Portrait of American Poets. The project will span a selection of thirty portraits of American poets and their work who are currently being recognized for their important contributions to the literary compass of American writing.
