American Folk Artist Mary T Smith

Screen shot 2014-02-16 at 18.05.42Jay Wehnert from Intuitive Eye has provided us with a short but fascinating account on the life of Mary T Smith, now known as an American Folk Artist. An Uprising. A rising up of hopes and dreams, of pride and culture, and a lifting up of head and arms were all essential aspects of Mary Tillman Smith’s life and art. Her life as an African American woman born into the Deep South at beginning of the Twentieth Century and her emergence in her later years as an important American artist is quite remarkable and indeed uplifting.
