Founder and director of the former Turner Center for the Arts, Wadsworth has been creating art since the 70s with a goal to engage friends and strangers in a visual conversation with her work. She hopes to inspire people to appreciate the moment and see the art in everything. This exhibit will showcase paintings of various ages including those in her private collection that have not been shown before. Her art is in private, corporate and academic collections in the United States, Europe and Asia. Her work is created with oil paint on various supports including primed canvas, tissue paper, raw canvas, synthetic canvas, Plexiglas, glass, fabric and wood. Her images are developed with the energy created by the application of the paint. She allows the page to speak to her instinct and follows the inspiration. She has mounted several solo and collaborative art exhibits in Maine and has participated in outdoor art festivals throughout Maine and New Hampshire since 1990. Her work has been exhibited in many juried exhibitions, including an exhibit at the Maine Center for Contemporary Art.

The works on display may be purchased through the WHA Gift Shop located adjacent to the main lobby at Central Maine Medical Center. As a result of the hospital safety precautions due to the pandemic, the art gallery is only available for viewing for staff, patients, and their designated visitors at this time. A percentage of sale proceeds benefits patients of CMMC.
