The Lost State of Frankland, September 28 - November 3
Mike Smith is exhibiting a collection of work drawing from the last decade, titled
The Lost State of Frankland, at Tracey Morgan Gallery. The show will be open to the public from September 28th through November 3rd.
The show is an elaboration of Smith's career-long process of documenting
Eastern Tennessee through landscapes, portraits, and studies.
Dot Editions had the pleasure of working with Mike on
mounting, framing, and installing the work on-site.
Mike's David print was a particularly interesting piece to work on. At 60x80 inches, it was the
largest work in the show, and required extra attention during mounting (to avoid air bubbles underneath the print’s large surface and to keep it flush down the length of the piece’s
aluminum composite backing) and took a large team for transport and install.
Ben Nixon of Maehill Frames led the installation of the work over the course of two days.
