Wendy Haimes Smith

Wendy Haimes Smith is a member artist of Cityline Studios in Friendship Heights, Maryland. Drawing on classical training, Ms. Smith paints in the Washington, D.C., area by direct observation of nature.  Her colorful paintings have a strong geometric basis, favoring diagonals or serpentine integration of shapes, especially in landscape works.  She often presents chromatic experiments that play between the picture plane and natural space.  Her still life and human figure paintings show more solid mass but with similar interlocking of color shapes and concentration on the geometric relationships and gestural cohesiveness of the objects of observation.

Ms. Smith studied drawing and painting as a certificate student at the Washington Studio School (WSS) and served on the WSS Board of Directors for over 10 years.   She also attended classes at the Corcoran School of Art, Smithsonian Institution, and the Art League of Alexandria, and holds a certificate in World Art History from the Smithsonian Institution.  She had her first one-man show, entitled “Inside/Outside Color,” at the Courtyard Gallery in Georgetown in 2001.  Her works have been shown in Washington at the Courtyard Gallery, the Brian Logan Art Space, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and the Artist’s Museum; in Virginia at the Art League in Alexandria; and in Maryland at the Yellow Barn at Glen Echo, Friendship Gallery, and Designer’s Art Gallery.

In addition to her many years pursuing artistic endeavors, Ms. Smith previously served in the federal government as a senior director of international trade programs, was the Vice President and COO of the private-sector firm Manhattan Strategy Group, and directed projects at the prestigious non-profit National Academy of Public Administration.  When not painting, she currently does independent consulting work relating to federal contracting. She and her husband live in Bethesda, Maryland.
