Hello, my name is Albert Smathers. I am an Artist/Educator at Mississippi College.
Most recently, I helped chair the committee to develop curricula for a BFA to be offered at MC. This new degree offering is to begin June of 2013. I believe this degree will help us to better equip our students for a career in the Fine Arts and perhaps even give them an edge on pursuing a MFA with us or any another Institution.
The most recent exhibit of my work was in November of 2012. This exhibit was a successful oneman show titled Far and Near. I believe working towards and having regular exhibits helps keep my artistic skills honed which in turn makes for a better art educator.
Currently I'm working on a solo exhibit scheduled for November 2014 titled Southeast to Northwest and Between. In this show I hope to have subjects inspired from my trips to Haiti and the State of Maine in 2013. Also will be included landscapes and ideas closer to home.
