Mary Jo Smith

Mary Jo Smith, a long time resident of West Hill, is a member of the PineRidge Arts Council and the Art Guild of Scarborough. She taught art lessons for many years to students from Kindergarten to Grade 8, and after retirement was able to focus more of her time on her own watercolour art as an enjoyable hobby.

Mary Jo is an avid theatre attendee and enjoys travel. She gets much of her inspiration for watercolour paintings from photos taken on various trips. Mary Jo’s art has been displayed at the Silverstone Gallery, Art Guild of Scarborough Shows, PineRidge Annual Juried Art Shows, Cedar Ridge Gallery, Momiji Centre, Sunnybrook Hospital Art Show, Debbie’s Café, Reed’s Florists, and the Scarborough General Hospital Gallery.

Her paintings hang in homes in Toronto, Georgetown, Thornhill, Brampton, and Los Angeles California. Prints of her Railway Series paintings decorate a restaurant in a converted train station outside of Houston, Texas. One painting was chosen for inclusion in Sunnybrook Hospital’s 2014 Christmas Card selection.

The OPG show will display about 15 of Mary Jo’s selected watercolour paintings.
