November 7th, Friday at 5:30 to 8 p.m.- Will Smith Art Show. On view for the first time in Santa Rosa are the motion drawings and prints by local artist William Smith. Inspired by his passion for cartoons and graphic work, William explores the folly of human nature with his darkly humorous, occasionally nightmarish, mythological beings. Each character, rendered in repeating, rhythmic contour lines is an archetype for various personality traits and roles ranging from the Sisyphus inspired Dilemma to the alluring and haunting siren belly dancer with tentacle arms. The exhibition includes drawings, linocuts and hand-colored lithographs. Facebook Location: The Yard 9th & Wilson
