A Los Angeles artist will visit University of Wisconsin-Stout to open an art exhibit and discuss his work.
Joshua West Smith is scheduled to attend an opening reception for his abstract art at 5:45 p.m. Monday, Feb. 3, at a first-floor gallery outside room 121 of the Applied Arts Building.
The gallery is a former hallway showcase that has been transformed and renamed A Clean Poorly Lighted Space.
After the reception, Smith will give an artist talk at 6:30 p.m. in room 121.
He is a Master of Fine Arts student at the University of California-Riverside, having returned to school after working as a welder fabricator and machinist.

Smith also is a juror for "Prometheus," an annual UW-Stout publication produced by Furlong Gallery and the Fine Arts Association.
His exhibit at UW-Stout will be on display for a short time, from one to two weeks.
