The Sewickley Gallery & Frame Shop

Model builder, Photographer, Artistic Director.... Michael Paul Smith
Fast forward to this spring’s Art and Gallery Walk that will be held on April 29th. It is an honor and a privilege for me to introduce our town to Flickr Phenomenon, Michael Paul Smith. In recreating his boyhood memories from Sewickley, Mr. Smith scratch-builds scale-model buildings, which he uses to create many different sets that are populated with model cars dating back to the mid 20th century. Set against outdoor backdrops of his current hometown of Winchester, MA, the model scenes are photographed thereby blending backgrounds to create his vision of the perfect town.
