Painter and fiber artist Lisa Smith has paper goods on at Pressa Russa

Lisa Smith has exhibited masterly paintings at Artspace over the past several years. She has also won notice for altered art fabric creations at her site

Now Smith has found an old letter press and has designed and manufactured a new line of artful goods. Found at, the Smith wit is well-employed in these note cards, invitations, journals and the like. Smith archness in paper goods includes logos such as: "Join my damn book club," "Watch more TV" (with full irony) and "Piss off!"

At both sites Smith demonstrates an impeccable sense of graphic charm and balance. And her vinegary logos seem to me to be happily contrary to what you'd expect to find on
