Mono-based painter Sharon Wadsworth-Smith has no shortage of inspirational natural settings to commit to canvas. Her latest works are a vibrant interpretation of the Island Lake Trail near Orangeville, where she often paints on location. Her trail experiences are relayed in bold slashes of forest green and autumn red, and packed with movement and energy. Last year Sharon received the Reed T. Cooper Bursary from the Dufferin Arts Council to support her work and allow her to attend an in-depth summer program at Haliburton School of Art & Design’s Fleming College. Watch for Sharon’s fall events, including a show at Farmhouse Pottery Gallery and Café in Hockley, and a workshop at Maggiolly Art Supplies in Orangeville. wadsworthsmithart.com
