We are very pleased to welcome Whitney Carter to the David B. Smith Gallery as our new director. Whitney brings an extensive knowledge of contemporary art and a decade of experience in the gallery business.
After receiving her MA in Art History from San Francisco State University, Whitney worked at several galleries in Los Angeles, including ACE Gallery, and was the director for four years at Kinkead Contemporary. She then founded Carter & Citizen, a contemporary art gallery in Culver City, and developed the gallery over three years into a well-respected contemporary art venue.
After nearly 10 years in Los Angeles, Whitney recently relocated to Denver to be closer to family. The David B. Smith Gallery is very pleased to welcome Whitney to our Gallery. Please stop by and say hello!
David was asked by Juxtapoz magazine to contribute to their “Travel Insider” series, which offers a review of local favorites in cities across the country by a member of the community, and he was honored to offer his thoughts on the sights, sounds, and stomachfuls to be found in Denver.
Pick up a copy of the June issue of Juxtapoz for David’s take on the cultural and culinary attractions located in our fair city.
Luxe Magazine listed the gallery in a list of Colorado destinations for “En Route” in their Spring 2014 issue:
Located in the historic LoDo neighborhood of Denver, David B. Smith Gallery has framed itself above the rest. Through progressive contemporary art, the gallery has made a name for itself among collectors on an international scale. Smith takes both established and emerging artists, such as Kim Keever (shown), to exhibit a curated and dynamic palette of talent. With an extensive publishing division and intelligent exhibits, the gallery serves as a cultural compass for the Colorado art scene.
5280 Home magazine featured the gallery in a feature called “How to Buy Art” in their Spring 2014 issue, which included advice from Denver-based art dealers and consultants.
Research galleries at industry sites such as the Denver Art Dealers Asociation, suggests David Smith, owner and director of the David B. Smith Gallery (pictured). Although the prices aren’t listed online, you’ll get a feel for which galleries’ aesthetics align with yours. Then start visiting your favorites. And don’t get intimidated. Smith says: “This is Denver, and pretty much every gallery here is totally accessible.”
