Jerry Smith – Artist, Friend, Colleague

It is with great sorrow that I learned of  the untimely passing  of my friend and colleague Jerry Smith. Jerry was the eldest of 3 brothers born in Philadelphia on November 3, 1965.  He attended the Tyler school of art for his undergraduate degree and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for his graduate degree.  His paintings were shown at the Carl Hammer Gallery in Chicago as well as the Bucheon Gallery in San Francisco.  He co-founded Connell-Smith Fine Art Services in 2001 with his wife and business partner Laurel Connell. He was an amazing painter, an avid reader of literature and newspapers, a lover of music, and most of all,  a great friend. We will all  miss him dearly. Contributions are being accepted in his honor to the California College of the Arts and the Langley Porter Psychiatric Care Institute at the University of California San Francisco Campus.
