Painter Arvie Smith

OPB | Oct. 4, 2001 10 a.m.

Arvie Smith’s paintings are not only bold and colorful, but also challenging. Arvie says he doesn’t paint, but rather tells stories. As an African American whose great-grandmother grew up as a slave, Arvie’s work challenges us with the struggle and pain of the African American experience. Arvie’s main gig is as an instructor at PNCA. Additionally, he gives back to the community by sharing his talents of painting and teaching with at risk youth.
