SMARTS Featured Artist: Don Williams
Don Williams was a YSU graduate and a member of the WKBN-TV team for 44 years. His work was once displayed in the Butler Art Institute and was placed in juried exhibitions where he won several awards.
Don’s paintings showcase his carpentry skills as he made unique canvases that ranged in size and shape. He combined realism and abstract design to create paintings with great detail and stunning visual effects. SMARTS is grateful to his wife, Sheila Williams who has donated a great portion of his collection to SMARTS.
You can bid on numerous Don William paintings at The Joy of SMARTS on June 23 from 5:30-9:30. Buy your tickets above!
