S.Carlyle Smith bio

S. Carlyle Smith


Carlyle is a full-time artist having accumulated hundreds of collectors over 40 years. He has never met most of them, as they were purchased in over 27 galleries across the country, including New York’s SOHO district for 6 years and Palm Desert for 12. He very much appreciates getting to know collectors that do contact him. Joe diGenova was one such collector that did call Carlyle to say he was a collector who with his wife Victoria Toensing had four paintings, one in each of their four homes. Primarily self-taught but has studied under Freeman Butts, Carolyn Anderson and Thomas English. He learned much from his mentors Arlene Hooker Fay, David Katz, W. Steve Seltzer, Tom Gilleon, Ron Ukrainetz, Mimi Grant, Joe Halko and Ron Deloney. His work has been featured three times in U.S.Art Magazine including one “Editor’s Choice”. Twice in Southwest Art Magazine including "Artist to Watch", American Art Collector Magazine and in Classic Style Magazine. His works are in private and corporate collections in the U.S. and abroad. Represented by; Samarah Fine Art, Whitefish, Montana, Historic Hotel Arvon Gallery, Great Falls, Montana and Altamira Fine Art, Jackson, Wyoming

I truly appreciate all of my collectors! If you own one of these listed as "Private collection" you probably bought the painting at a gallery and I don't have your name. Please contact me if you want to be named and I can update my provenance records.
