You don’t need to spend a lot of time with John to know his passion for art. Thank goodness we met! While visiting Booth Bay Harbor in Maine, I checked out the Gold|Smith Gallery were I discovered his work. I was moved by his rhythm and bold colors he created in his ‘Classic Jazz’ series. Emotions run high and he is constantly working on pieces; some take years to complete. Life emulates with his creations and the sounds of music shine through. Each piece is classic, like the artist. His knowledge of art, culture, being in the moment and conversation had me intrigued. Splitting his time in studios in Maine and Italy have unique surroundings and a wide breadth of creations he continues to work on… Bravo!
