Meet Durham’s Newest Artist

It’s not that Chad Smith is a new artist, nope, he’s a legit artist with rep­re­sen­ta­tions and gallery shows. It’s just he’s a fresh­ly mint­ed Durham artist, hav­ing fol­lowed his wife here from Upstate NY for her Duke stud­ies just three weeks ago.

I was dri­ving away from a meet­ing at DPAC (LOVE DPAC!), and as my car went by the Durham Bulls park, it was awe­some to see some­one with an easel out paint­ing the view.

I quick­ly pulled over and had to say hi. Glad I did too. I was able to give Chad the offi­cial Nifty Durham wel­come (Nifty but­ton includ­ed) and hear about his work, and his hopes to meet oth­er artist and inter­est­ing folks in the area. 

He said ball play­ers have already stopped over to see what he was doing, and he thinks he’ll nev­er run out of ideas to paint at over the ATC.

So if you see some­one out paint­ing our town, say hel­lo, par­tic­u­lar­ly if you’re a fel­low artist who wants to share ideas.
