Ruth Mansmith To Hold March 26 Art Exhibit

Ruth Mansmith

Wellington artist Ruth Mansmith is making big splash in the art world. An abstract artist, Mansmith recently discovered she has talent and people are noticing.

On March 26, from 5 to 7 p.m., Palm Beach Polo & Country Club will be hosting a one-woman exhibition, the Contemplative Canvas, to showcase Mansmith’s latest collection.

The community is coming together at the Polo Café (11585 Polo Club Road, Wellington) to celebrate Mansmith’s recent entry into the exclusive Art in Public Places program.

“I owe so much to my friends and family who encouraged me to go public with my art,” said Mansmith, who creates in her Polo Club studio.

Mansmith, an abstract expressionist, was trained in realism. After 20 years in Chicago as a healthcare executive, managing 49 facilities in 26 states, with 10,000 residents, she walked away from her career. She picked up a paintbrush and began painting from her spirit. This is an exhibition of midlife transformation.

As founder and president of Gen4Good, a nonprofit organization, she will donate proceeds to train local boys and girls. Its mission is to empower youth to be the next generation of social-change leaders through leadership training, business and social etiquette.
