Ruth Smith Gallery takes art out of the traditional gallery space and into the lives of the unsuspecting. It is passionate that art is a necessity of life and should be part of the everyday. Nomadic in nature, it says that the gallery is defined by people and relationships and not walls. Therefore any space is a place for encountering art.
Founded and directed by the artist Ruth Helen Smith, this gallery is essentially an artist takeover of the concept of the gallery, where artists are brought together to create and direct new visual dialogues, to develop their practice and stand on a platform which involves a wider audience.
