The Art of KENT SMITH w/. Live Music w/ Torpedos Los and The Francos

The Outta Space, 6840 32nd St., Berwyn

The Outta Space is excited to have artist and musician KENT SMITH return to show his work and play some music in The Francos for our December art show. "Kent Smith’s work has been described as “charming and hilarious” and “simultaneously subversive and adorable.” A commercial artist, Kent got his start in retail promotion, drawing memorable images for Trader Joe’s, People’s Market, Wild Oats and Lucky’s Market. Other clients include business consulting firms and IT service organizations, where in addition to commissioned illustrations, he has led innovation sessions using graphic facilitation/scribing. Kent’s work, largely acrylic and charcoal, reflects his social conscience, by way of his love of music, midcentury advertising, and furry animals. His delightful, sometimes mischievous, sense of humor (all his puns are unapologetically intended) yields images that cheekily nod to pop culture but are infused with his fresh sensibility and a whole lot of color." -Jane Flynn-Royko “First and foremost, I hope my work entertains. If my Soda Bear and I can do that, maybe saving the planet will come next.” --- Kent Smith, 2021 ALSO--LIVE MUSIC by--- TORPEDOS LOS and THE FRANCOS!!! 6pm doors/ 8pm music $10
