Testing Authentic Waters: Painter Ty Smith creates for the soul and passion of art

"Going to TU was the best thing that ever happened to my work," Smith said. In addition to having ample studio time for making discoveries on the canvas, Smith was able to develop close relationships with many highly celebrated artists who came to TU through the school's visiting artist program. Smith entered the University of Tulsa's MFA program in 2006 and since graduating has begun working as an adjunct faculty member there teaching drawing and design. 

Smith's work will be on display in Tulsa at Aberson Exhibits at 3524 S Peoria beginning July 19, though. His work is part of a group show featuring the work of artists: Aileen Chong, Brian Dehart, Jim Polan, Gary Reddick and Michelle Williams. An artist reception will be held July 28 from 6-8pm.
