The Woman’s National Democratic Club is excited to announce their current exhibition, Jasmin I. Smith’s “In the Forest of the Night.” This exhibition opened May 18th and runs through September 5th, 2023.

Smith’s series of paintings are inspired by her childhood trips to the mangrove forests of the Sundarbans in the Bay of Bengal. Speaking about her work, Smith says “Providing glimpses of the deep forest, with not a living soul in sight, has a sense of peace and mystery for me as we don’t know what could be lurking in the dark.”

Smith recieved her BA in English and Visual Arts from the University of Ottowa. She draws inspiration from the bold shapes and lines of artists such as Henri Rousseau and attributes her connection to vibrant and strong colors to her South Asian background.
