About Us


Main Pg 8

2 Smith Art Gallery is Atlanta’s newest fine art gallery. The gallery features affordable, original art work from over 30 regional and national artists. Oil painting classes are offered. Portrait and commissioned art is available. The gallery is located in Gwinnett County on Main Street in Historic Downtown Duluth, GA.  The gallery was created by the artistic husband and wife team of Pam and Larry Smith.

Since 2004 Larry and Pam have shown their work at juried art shows all over the country. Larry’s work has been featured in select galleries, Art Collector Magazine and is in the home of many private art collectors. In the past 12 years, Pam and Larry have received various awards, and made friends with some of the best fine artists in the country — many who are featured in 2 Smith Art Gallery. Larry’s paintings were recently selected as “Best of Show – Oil and Acrylic Painting” category at the 2016 Atlanta Dogwood Festival.

Larry paints impressionistic landscapes and Pam excels in oil portraits and figurative paintings. Both are available for commission work. In addition to their 2-D work, 2 Smith Art Gallery features a variety of one-of-a-kind wooden bowls and boxes, beautiful hand-made jewelry, metal and bronze sculptures, clay and more. 2 Smith Art Gallery is full of original paintings including works from regionally known artists including painters, David Boyd, Nancy Nowak (pastel artist), Charles Cashwell, Li Wang, Gary Colby, and Bert Beirne. We have wonderful wood-turned bowls from Spike Cloninger and unique glass-like sculptures by Louis Gonzalez.

For the past eight years, Larry and Pam have become one of Atlanta’s premier teaching pair. Together they co-teach teach beginners and experienced artists how to develop their skills in oil painting. This unique style of two teachers in one class allows students to get the maximum instruction as they learn to paint. In 2015 they filled over 180 students in their Wednesday and Thursday classes. With a little help and lots of encouragement, their students are learning how to improve their painting skills. Many are able to sell their paintings on-line using social media.

Before joining forces as artists and teachers, Larry and Pam were partners for 20 years in their own successful Atlanta advertising agency. Their long history of working together has helped make them a very effective teaching duo. We hope you will make plans to come by and see us. Share a cup of coffee and see the art.
