F ounded in 1999, in Washington, DC, by Leigh Conner and Dr. Jamie Smith, CONNERSMITH specializes in Contemporary and Post-War Art. CONNERSMITH promotes art that contributes to important art-historical movements, with a particular focus on innovations in color-field abstraction. For two decades CONNERSMITH has encouraged vital new experimentation in abstract imaging presenting seminal work by renowned digital light artist Leo Villareal and supporting his installations at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC and the Smithsonian Institution’s Renwick Gallery. Digital innovations find context within the gallery’s historical color field exhibitions featuring works by Morris Louis, Kenneth Noland, Alma Thomas, Gene Davis, Howard Mehring, Thomas Downing, Sam Gilliam and Paul Reed.
