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.
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.
