WARDSBORO- Susan Potter Smith, a Wardsboro resident and wife of Fred Smith, exhibited her artwork for over 30 years and won multiple awards. She was a loyal artist friend to the community and the Wardsboro Public Library.

Over the years, Smith donated some of her works of art to fundraising events sponsored by the Friends of the Wardsboro Library. Smith also exhibited her work in the Wardsboro 4th of July exhibitions held at the Library, and had also been presenting her work in the Library as Artist of the Month.

The subject matter of Smith’s paintings was an extension of her passion for gardening, all filled with love of nature. Her watercolors and oil paintings grew out of her everyday life--the flowers she grew, the china and knickknacks she loved and places dear to her.

A gathering at the Wardsboro Public Library is scheduled for Tuesday, August 19, at 7 pm. The exhibition of her work, some 25 paintings in oil and watercolor, will be on display until the end of August.

The show is open during library hours. The library is located at 170 Main Street in Wardsboro. Call the library at (802) 896-6988 or visit
