SMITHS is a project inspired by the history of general stores as intimate spaces of public exchange. From tinsmiths to tunesmiths, artist Allison Smith invites an ever-changing repertoire of local makers to her downtown Oakland storefront to share their skills and stories. These lively monthly gatherings engage participants in conversations on the social histories of craft in order to locate useful models for creative practice in the present, especially in times of war and economic uncertainty.
