Gallery talk with Thomas Brent Smith

Curator Thomas Brent Smith will present a gallery talk on Tuesday, January 23rd at 4 pm at the Frederic Remington Art Museum, 303 Washington Street, Ogdensburg. The talk will address Remington’s paintings and sculptures, and will take place in the Newell Galleries at the Remington Museum. The event is free and open to the public.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to hear new insights and perspectives on the Museum’s Remington collection from an exciting young scholar and curator of Western American art,” says Laura Desmond, education specialist at the Remington Museum.

Thomas Brent Smith is Curator of Western American Art and Director of the Petrie Institute of Western American Art at the​ Denver Art Museum. He held earlier curatorial positions at the Tucson Museum of Art; the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming; and the C.M. Russell Center at the University of Oklahoma in Norman. Smith has written widely about Western art, including in The American West in Bronze, 1850-1925 (Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2014) which includes work by artists such as Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell.

Smith is co-curator of the major exhibition, "Once Upon a Time… The Western: A New Frontier in Art and Film" on display at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts through February 4th. The exhibit, which originated at the Denver Art Museum, explores the West as seen in art and movies, including depiction of Native America and First Nation peoples, and themes related to questions still current today such as violence, the stereotypical representation of the sexes, interracial relationships, and the acceptance of difference.

During his visit, Smith will also speak at St. Lawrence University in Griffiths Art Center, Room 123, on Thursday, January 25, at 4:30 pm about his curatorial career, his interest in the art of the American and Canadian West, and about the development of the exhibition currently on view in Montreal. His talk will be followed by an informal reception in the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery.
