Rod Smith

Rod (Galuyagmi “Great First Birth”) was taught by his father Harris Smith (Lalkawilas). He often works in basswood, red and yellow cedar, arbutus and maple. Rod is perhaps best known for his precise and elegant painting style. His pieces include: sculptures, masks, poles, original paintings, plates, vessels, bowls and bentwood boxes. In 2002, Rod completed an 8-foot pole in collaboration with his father and brother, Steve Smith, and they finished the pole here at Lattimer Gallery. In 2005, Rod was featured in the ‘Changing Hands: Art Without Reservation 2′ exhibition that opened at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. In 2013, Rod and Steve were featured in an exhibition titled ‘Collaboration & Contrast’ at Vancouver’s Lattimer Gallery.
