SMITH | PALEY is the first exhibition to feature a collaboration by internationally renowned artists Clarice Smith and Albert Paley.  Triptych(2016) was the inspiration for this exhibition.  SMITH | PALEY features a selection of Smith's paintings, including a five-panel screen Gallop; and a selection of Paley's sculptures, including maquettes for the project documented in Albert Paley on Park Avenue. 

 “Both artists have something to say about beauty and substance in good design.  They honor and study the past, yet continue to innovate toward future projects.  The triptych is a unique collaboration that invites the viewer to experience a “gateway” into timeless design”.
