Wendy Dimick Smith is currently an art instructor at Northridge High School in Layton, Utah. Smith says “When I am not instructing; I am painting. I am an ambitious artist. I paint to make people feel good. I receive satisfaction when a client picks up their painting and they get misty-eyed when they see my version of their children.” While Smith enjoys painting portraits, she also paints landscapes, murals and numerous of the Ogden Pioneer Day horses.
The Art Center staff invites you to visit during the October Art Stroll, then return during the month to enjoy the paintings in UWS and Wendy Dimick Smith Exhibits. Regular gallery hours are weekdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
