This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information was submitted in August of 2006 by Wayne Kielsmeier of Covington Gallery:


A painter, teacher, printmaker and stage designer, Smith was born in St. Louis, and after his formative years he sought out a career in art, studying at the St. Louis School of Fine Art, The Corcoran School in Washington D.C. and independently  in Paris. 

During this later time he lived in Kent Connecticut, where he taught at the Kent School, and was a member of the Wilton Group of Artists, the Kent Art Association, the Connecticut Watercolor Society and the Connecticut Academy. 

In 1954 he left Kent and moved to Tucson, Arizona where he obtained a degree in drama and was a professor at the University of Arizona where he was a member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild.  He retired in 1972 moving to Sonoita Arizona where he resided for the rest of his career.





Biography from Eric Firestone Gallery:
Born in St. Louis, Channing Smith studied art at the Corcoran School in Washington, D.C. and the St. Louis School of Fine Arts, followed by independent study in Paris. He earned a degree in drama in 1954 from the University of Arizona, where he later taught.

In addition to painting the local landscape, Smith designed stage sets for drama productions and made many marvelous woodcut prints. These woodblocks, printed on a turn of the century press on heavily textured paper, garnered Smith considerable acclaim. He also painted numerous portraits.

Smith was a respected member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild.
