Wellington Artist Ruth Mansmith To Be Honored By West Palm Beach

Ruth Mansmith speaks about her art to spectators.

Wellington artist Ruth Mansmith will be honored when West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio unveils an original work of art by Mansmith at West Palm Beach City Hall on Monday, Jan. 8 at 3 p.m.

Mansmith specializes in original acrylic on canvas paintings. After summering in Paris for several seasons, Mansmith began work in abstract expressionism.

Mansmith’s work caught the attention of collectors, as well as Muoio, who commissioned a Mansmith piece to be publicly displayed.

Mansmith, the founder and president of Gen4Good, supports the nonprofit organization through art sales.

Gen4Good empowers at-risk youth to become the next generation of social-change leaders through leadership training, community outreach and art appreciation.
