Coastal Landscape by Samual Smith

" Divine Inspiration Gallery provided me a unique opportunity for a solo show, with tremendous gallery space for a large show, with a fine interior, situated right on Santa Barbara's State Street- which helped launch my local presence and contributed to my success as a First place recipient at the 2015 Art Walk ' Artists of Distinction' exhibition and the 2016 Bacara Scape show.
Thank you Sherry" Samuel Smith, MD

"Sherry, thank you for getting me started in my first group show at your Carpinteria gallery, and then giving me my first solo show in your new Divine Inspiration Gallery on State Street in Santa Barbara. Those experiences helped me develop the discipline and confidence to reach broader audiences such as those at this year's Butler institute of American Art National Midyear Show. Good luck, and may you and your gallery continue to foster the growth of exciting new art."
Sincerely Jim Granito, Esq.

" Sherry Spear took a chance on my artwork. She gave me a part in a joint show with two very accomplished artists in her gallery Divine Inspiration Gallery of Fine Art. This was my first show ever. She extended that into my first solo show. Her confidence and value of my art through showings in her gallery led to many other showings and other galleries. But Sherry gave me my start. The Divine Inspiration Gallery is magnificent, well-appointed, generous space, great lighting, and dedicated to art. I have been extremely fortunate to have started my public showing of my art at Divine Inspiration. Sherry has been one of my greatest supporters. "
