Artist Bio: LaSalle Artist, Dennis K. Smith, grew up in Harrow, Ontario, and his artistic talents include drawing, printmaking, painting, sculpture, music, and play writing. Dennis also teaches art lessons and is the President of The Artists of Colour which was formed in 2008 and includes Black artists who, according to their website, use the visual and oral language of art to share their history. If you've been to the Amherstburg Freedom Museum, you will have seen his artwork with the theme of Emancipation Day on display. According to Dennis ""I believe that art is capable of engaging and enriching the spirit of man. Through art mankind overcomes the barrier of the spoken language and speaks a visual dialogue that is birth from the heart. I strive to convey a greater appreciation of my subject by shifting the perception of what many view as ordinary, and hopefully elevate it to art. To accomplish this, I am not challenged to render an exact likeness, but endeavor to artistically react to what I am seeing and feeling about my subject then visually and emotionally transferring that response to the viewer."
