Visual Art League of Lewisville: Teta Smith demo August 11, Trading Cards & Upcoming Exhibits

VAL Schedule of Meetings, Artists’ Talks/Demonstrations, Workshops and Exhibits 

August 4th   — Board Meeting 

August 11th —  Guest Speaker Teta Smith

Teta Smith, owner of Teta Smith Studio, paints luminescent contemporary paintings in watercolor, acrylic, collage, and oil with cold wax.


It comes as no surprise that when Teta was asked why she painted, her response was simply ” I feel I’ve been created to create. Besides, I’m a nicer person when I have time to paint! ” Pursuing her passion for art came naturally, guided as she is, by the ultimate Creator. Painting has now become an inseparable part of her life.

“I create to involve the viewer by expressing emotions and intangible concepts, supported by strong design. My paintings take me to places that I can’t get to verbally, and convey so much that I can’t express in any other way. Phrases, brief comments, scripture or a scene, can touch me deeply and I feel compelled to paint it.”

Teta enjoys weaving in symbolism and avoids photo realism in her work, preferring the sort of elusive quality that prompts a closer look and viewer interpretation. Her love of color was rewarded when 3 of her paintings were featured in the bookConfident Color by Nita Leland.
