Click! Co-proprietress Frances Smersh has been known primarily for her use of innovative materials in design-forward jewelry for most of the last two decades. In the last several months she’s been focusing her creative energy in another medium: painting.
Drawing inspiration from a trip to the Utah desert last year, Frances has developed themes evocative of water, life forms, and geometric structures in a style all her own. She paints simple lines and shapes washed with colors that warm and soften the feel of her pieces.
Trajectory, the first collection of Frances’ new work, will be at Click! beginning with an opening reception on West Seattle Art Walk: 6-9pm November 14, 2013. Her artwork will remain through the end of the year.
