Currently On Exhibit at The Library - Sharon De Vore

For most of her life, Sharon De Vore's artistic expression was physical. She has had a great appreciation for art all her life & been to galleries all over the world. Because Sharon is a self-taught artist, she feels that she learned from each painting she saw from childhood to present. Several times in her life she did dabble some in oils, & for many years, sold hundreds of her black lacquer mola boxes. One of her oil paintings did win an award. Then in 1986 she took up photography & saw the world through her camera in a different way; an artistic way instead of strictly documentary. Sharon’s won several awards for her photography, & her first showing came in Clearwater, FL on January 31, 1996 at Morton Plant Hospital’s well known gallery. For the first time in the 20+ years of the art shows, CBS news came to interview Sharon & film her photographs as they were being hung. She was featured on their weekly TV show “What’s Good for Tampa Bay”. Sharon has sold many many of her photographs.

Then in the summer of 2002 Sharon & her now deceased husband, Frank Gonzalez, bought a home in Ozark. A few months later in November, Arkansas’s mountains & beauty, much like Panama’s, inspired Sharon to start painting with acrylics. Since then she has sold many acrylics & many have won awards. The Panama Canal Museum, a National Museum, & the Fort Smith Regional Art Museum each have several of Sharon’s paintings in their permanent collection. “It is like a dam has opened, & I have found a way to express the beauty I see on canvas for others to enjoy.
