Connie Smith Siegel: Legacy Retrospective
October 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Marin Art and Garden Center in partnership with the San Geronimo Valley Community Center is pleased to announce the Connie Smith Siegel: Legacy Retrospective in The Studio Gallery at the Marin Art and Garden Center from October 15 – November 27, 2022. There will be an opening reception on Sunday, October 23, 2022 from 1 – 3:00pm.
Connie Smith Siegel was an accomplished artist and teacher, using art as activism, color as healing, and landscape painting as a way to honor the earth and the sense of place. After Connie’s passing on August 4, 2020, the breadth and legacy of her work was truly realized. This retrospective collection pulls from over a thousand pieces covering miles upon miles of California landscapes and beyond.
Connie is quoted as saying, “Being an artist is a political statement,” and this melding of art and activism is more relevant than ever before. In a time when people locally, nationally, and globally are rising up to meet the threats of Climate Change, Connie’s work brings forward the history of this movement and honors the climate and beauty of the earth through her admiring lens. Connie’s work remains relevant to the new and ongoing challenges related to the current climate crisis and peace activism.
The Connie Smith Siegel: Legacy Retrospective will be open to the public at Marin Art and Garden Center – Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10am – 4pm and Sundays from 12 – 4pm. Marin Art and Garden Center is located at 30 Sir Francis Drake Blvd. in Ross.
