Ford and Cristi Smith have been married for over 20 years and have operated Ford Smith Fine Art for the past 15 of them. This formidable team of art professionals are well-versed in Ford Smith, as well as the professional art industry.
Ford and Cristi Smith are co-owners of Ford Smith Fine Art, purveyors of Ford Smith original paintings and publishers of his fine art limited editions sold in fine galleries around the world. They also own and operate their own brick-and-mortar gallery located in the historic district in Roswell, GA (northern suburb of ATL). This exclusive Ford Smith Fine Art gallery serves as Ford's showroom and Cristi's extended office.
It's a fabulous space in a great location operating as the Ford Smith "flagship" for original paintings and limited editions. It is the perfect stage for Ford's talent where he feels the freedom to experiment, debut new paintings, new series and, most importantly, spread his artistic wings. Ford Smith Fine Art in Roswell is an extraordinary viewing experience of some of the most imaginative and coveted art today.
In their partnership, Ford's primary job is creating extraordinary art, and Cristi, with her 20-year career as a Fortune 100 retail marketing executive, handles just about everything else. She is also a masthead editor and writes for major art industry publications coaching artists, galleries and publishers on art business and marketing strategies.
Along with the Roswell gallery, as the conventional art world and it's boundaries change, the Ford Smith art team continues to evolve with it. Fueled by a loyal following on social media, and the growing acceptance of non-traditional retail sales in nearly every luxury category, this online gallery was created for Ford Smith fans out-of-state and around the world.
Additionally, Ford Smith's paintings are sold in exclusive fine art galleries with special guest artist appearances in the USA and Canada. We will keep you informed of when and where Ford will be on our blog and social media.
Our goal is to provide the most focused, informative and personalized Ford Smith experience you'll find anywhere. It is here that you'll view, learn and love Ford's extraordinary paintings in a way that only the artist (and those closest to him) can make happen.
Thank you for spending this time with us! Enjoy your visit and we look forward to enlightening you with incredible art and making your dream of owning your own Ford Smith a reality.
Yours in friendship and fabulous art,
Ford and Cristi Smith
