Elizabeth Apgar-Smith, best known for her impressionistic landscapes of the Schoharie Valley region, cityscapes, still lifes, and depictions of people engaged in everyday living, is currently focusing on an evolving, touring exhibition, Faithful Labors, a tribute to Schoharie County’s farm families. The exhibit opened in spring of 2005 at Wellington’s Herb & Spice Farm Gallery in Schoharie, then moved on to The Bennington Center for the Arts in Vermont, followed by stops at The Old Forge Arts Center, The Rensselaerville Institute, and two summers at the Smithy Gallery in Cooperstown.
The Skidmore College graduate has earned numerous regional and national honors over the years for her pastels, watercolors and oils. She has been featured in articles in two major art magazines, and has had multiple examples of her work included in six books on painting technique.
Elizabeth teaches at the Hudson River Valley Art Workshops in Greenville, NY, and offers weekly classes in the spring and fall from her studio in Schoharie. She is a juried member of the Pastel Society of America, the Northeast Watercolor Society and the Capital Region Oakroom Artists.
