      The Hope Suite- Mark L. Smith

      Opening Reception with ArtWalk
      Friday, September 6, 6 to 9 pm
      Exhibition Dates: September 6 – October 45 2019



      K Space Contemporary is pleased to present The Hope Suite, a series of mixed media works on paper by Mark L. Smith. We invite the public to join us for the opening reception on Friday, Sept. 6 during ArtWalk from 6 to 9 pm.

      The Hope Suite includes 44 works of art that each contain the word “Hope” in a different language. Inspired by President Obama’s campaign message, Smith selected languages from areas that are most in need of hope, places that struggle with ongoing unrest and conflict.

      “Art is a universal language. And hope is a universal feeling. At this time in human history, we all long for a ray of hope, for some vestige of unity.

      I began this series in 2008 as a way to help build bridges between diverse cultures; art as diplomacy. During the six years I spent making the 44 works on paper, it became more than that, evolving into a celebration of the fact that—despite our diversity in language and culture—we are all one, with a common hope for our future together.”

      – Mark L. Smith

      Smith encourages viewers to take a slow look at each work of art, the Map of Hope, the Quilt of Hope, and to leave a Note of Hope before they leave the exhibition. “These are small acts, but they change our world for the better.” The Hope Suite will be on display at K Space Contemporary September 6 through October 5. A closing reception will be held Saturday, Oct. 5 from 5 to 7 pm.
