Nate Smithâs metaphorical belief that color symbolizes life is brought to life in his âMystical Revealingâ art show, on display in the Vail Public Library Community Room through Wednesday, Feb. 15. A bold vibrancy dominates his mixed-media paintings. âI love color,â he said. âBeing self-taught, with no preconceived limitations, no color is too bright. I try to embed symbolic messages in all my positive, whimsical artwork.â Smithâs mixed-media style utilizes oil, acrylic and ink. âI try to keep my artwork lively, sharp and fresh,â he said. Smith is a member of the Vail Valley Art Guild and is also currently exhibiting at the Art of the Valley Gallery in Avonâs Chapel Square. Admission is free for both the library exhibit and the gallery. For more information, visit www.natesmithweb.wordpress.com or call 970-470-1732.
