Two unique perspectives and styles, one the former professor and the other the former student, both from western North Carolina, both bringing freshness and energy to the North Carolina and Raleigh art scene.
Noyes Capehart received his B.A. in illustration from Auburn University in 1958 and his M.F.A. in printmaking from the University of Missouri in 1963. Noyes taught at Appalachian State University from 1969 to his retirement in 1997. Noyes is a storyteller in every sense of the word and this is reflected in his art. Words may follow pictures, or visa versa. Drawings may lead to paintings or short stories, or just more drawings. In the end, pictures and words will always come forth and they will lead to expressions we all understand and appreciate. Noyes and his wife, Susie, live in Boone, NC.
Gregory L. Smith earned his B.A. in painting from Appalachian State University in 1992 where he was a student of Noyes Capehart’s. Stylistically his work is always in motion, changing, moving off in new directions. Landscape, still-life, and portrait paintings are all connected by his constant fascination with the physical properties of the medium. Greg often incorporates a trompe l’oiel effect in his work. Beyond subject, style and content it is his preoccupation with paint itself which constantly is a source of interest and inspiration. Greg lives and works in Banner Elk, NC.
