Jo Smoley

Jo’s artwork has found its way into homes across Canada, the USA, Germany and Trinidad.  She has artist connections all over the world through social media. She currently has displays at Warehouse Artworks, Gwen Fox Gallery in Selkirk MB, Tradition Law LLP and RE/MAX Performance Realty.

Jo grew up in Winnipeg’s trendy Wolseley area into an extremely creative family who taught her everything was possible if you wanted it badly enough. All you have to do is work at it until you get it right and so through an impressive list of mentors, networking and perseverance, she is doing just that.  “I believe becoming an artist takes a lifetime,” Jo says. “Along this journey you rediscover and reinvent your technique, always searching for your own personal perfection and signature style.”

Jo is a long time member of LCAG (Local Colour Art Group) where she creates the monthly newsletter to keep their 100+ members connected. 

She was one of 3 jurors in 2016 for the artists at the Grist Mill in Westport, Ontario and has juried the photography with the Manitoba Camera Club on numerous times.

She has participated and been involved in the formation of the Artists of East St. Paul Art Tour and created their brochure and poster. As well, she coordinates an evening in East St Paul, where once a week, artists paint while sharing their skills, ideas and knowledge. In 2019 she was one of three artists who received an award from the RM of East St Paul for her volunteer work in promoting art in the community.

She regularly shows her work at Winnipeg’s premiere art show, Art Expo since 2018, and Manitoba Society of Artists juried art shows. “Two Eyes One Soul” was a solo show, featuring her artwork, hosted by Warehouse Artworks at 222 McDermot Avenue in September 2018. Her art continues to be featured there.
