"Gently subversive and brilliantly layered."
- Vince Aletti
"Alix Smith is a brilliant artist. I support her enthusiastically!"
- Arthur C. Danto (Art Critic)
"A photographer of psychological depth as well as of class and status, Alix Smith’s portraits of friends and acquaintances enact a 21st century theater of manners featuring the urbane, well-heeled set. Part informal snapshots, part orchestrated tableaux, Smith’s stylized photographs are cast squarely in the directorial vein. Her limpid, elegant pictures portray well-rehearsed identities that sometimes bleed into cliches, the better to point up the truth behind shared stereotypes."
-Christian Viveros-Faune (Art Critic)
"There is this long history of art being a device to bring the public's attention to things that might not be right in front of them.... It's more subversive then the most overtly political work out there because the message is delivered so quietly and with such a gentle touch that you don't know that your ideas might have shifted until after the fact."
- Sally Morgan Lehman (Morgan Lehman Gallery)
"Her project will be a major catalogue of contemporary gay families."
- John Bennette (Art Collector / Critic)
The pictures are beautiful in their elegance and representation of traditional values with non-traditional families.
