Marjorie Williams-Smith's "Angels" in "The Messengers."

Hearne Fine Art will open the exhibition “The Messengers: A Survey of Work in Metalpoint by Marjorie Williams-Smith,” the artist’s first solo show at the gallery at 1001 Wright Ave., with a reception from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19.  Williams-Smith, one of the finest metalpoint artists in the country and one of our own, will give a talk about her work at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at Hearne. 

Also of note: Williams-Smith’s drawing “Lines” is included in the recent release, “Silverpoint and Metalpoint Drawing: A Complete Guide to the Medium,” authored by revered metalpoint artists Susan Schwalb (whose work was recently on view at the Arkansas Arts Center) and Tom Mazzullo.

The show runs through Nov. 25.
