Ned Smith: The Man and the Illustrator
May 18 – September 22, 2019

RTPI’s galleries will feature breathtaking original works and artifacts from the collections of the Ned Smith Center for Nature & Art beginning on May 18, 2019. E. Stanley “Ned” Smith was born Oct. 9, 1919 in Millersburg, Pa., a small town on the Susquehanna River north of Harrisburg.  A self-trained artist and naturalist, in his 46-year career he created thousands of astonishingly accurate drawings and paintings of wildlife for books, magazines and other publications, as well as dozens of limited-edition prints.  Smith created nearly 120 cover paintings for Pennsylvania Game News, the agency’s magazine, and in the 1960’s he began a monthly column he dubbed “Gone for the Day” that proved to be enduringly popular.  The column ran for four years, and in 1971 was republished in book form.  It remains in print, one of the classics of Pennsylvania nature writing.

His freelance work included long-running columns, articles and illustrations in Sports Afield, National Wildlife, Pennsylvania Angler, South Carolina Wildlife, National Geographic and other magazines, and over the years he illustrated 14 books, including the Peterson Field Guide to Birds’ Nests by the noted naturalist Hal Harrison.
