Founded in 2007, Smith-Stewart specializes in finding and cultivating new talent while producing a dynamic roster of exhibitions that spans mediums, expands aesthetic convention, and reaches across generations. In its two-years of operating, the gallery appeared regularly in international magazines and newspapers and exhibitions were frequently reviewed in such notable publications as ArtForum, The New York Times and The New Yorker. The Gallery recently evolved into a roving curatorial project with no permanent address.
