Contributed Information William Smith came to George West in 2006 to teach art at Sue and Keith Roger’s Trailside Artisan.  Some of his first students in George West were Jackie Johnson, Alexis Bennett and Earlyn Tompkins, all members of Unify to Beautify. The community is lucky because Smith and his wife, Carrie, are now calling George West their home. Smith has been a great friend to UTB and has once again agreed to paint a 22x28 picture of “Geronimo and his friend”, which will be auctioned off at the Derby Party following the sixth annual Ranch House Tour and Derby Party.    Half of the proceeds of the two events will go to the Geronimo Project. As a self-taught artist, the works of Russell and Remington inspire Smith.  They knew how to capture the Old West.  Born in Kingsville and raised in South Texas, Smith learned about ranching and cattle early in life.  He has worked for several ranches throughout Texas.  In his work, he tries to capture the beauty of the Texas landscape and the working cowboy in everyday life.  He has been told that his artwork makes you feel like you have been there or creates a special memory. Smith’s artwork has won him numerous best in show and people’s choice awards.  His work has been displayed in several galleries throughout Texas and also has numerous painting in private  collections, both domestically and internationally. This year’s tour will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 2, and the Derby party will begin shortly afterward at 5 p.m. at Katzfey Party Barn. This year, half of all net proceeds from the event will be donated to “Save History, Preserve Geronimo,” and the rest will go to beautification projects around town and donations would be appreciated.
