<b>Montgomery College will host "Continuum: Mother and Son, Artist and Author," from September 28 through November 12 at the Cultural Arts Center on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus.</b>

The exhibition features four collaborative book projects completed by David Bruce Smith and Clarice Smith over the past 20 years, with text by David Bruce Smith and displays of original art work by Clarice Smith. It is sponsored by Montgomery College's Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus Division of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.

David Bruce Smith has a bachelor's degree in American literature from George Washington University, and a master's in journalism from New York University. During the past 20 years he has been a real estate executive and editor-in-chief and publisher of Crystal City Magazine. He is the author of nine books: "13 Young Men," "Tennessee," "Three Miles From Providence: A Tale of the Old Soldiers' Home," "Conversations with Papa Charlie," "Afternoon Tea with Mom," "Letters to My Children," "Building the Community," and "Continuum."

Clarice Smith, wife of the late Robert H. Smith, attended the University of Maryland and received bachelor's and master's degrees from George Washington University where she was also an adjunct faculty member of the Art Department from 1980-1987.

Smith has been painting professionally for 40 years and has had numerous solo exhibitions in prestigious galleries in the United States and abroad including London, Paris, Zurich, Maastricht and Jerusalem. She is represented by the Gerald Peters Gallery in New York City. Embodying the serenity and excitement of nature, her oeuvre includes floral still-lifes reminiscent of the 17th-century masters, equestrian scenes, and portraits.

Most recently, Clarice Smith's "Elements of Nature: Equines and Still Lifes," featuring 20 paintings that articulated her vision of the natural world, was on exhibit from October 2009 through January 2010 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC. Currently, Mrs. Smith's works are on exhibition at the Cosmos Club in Washington, DC; next year she will show at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia.
