Provenance: From the Niece of Alma Sawbridge
Though not an acclaimed historically significant Canadian artist, Alma Sawbridge became recognized in her local art community for her distinctively bright colored landscapes and still life paintings. Formerly residing at 168 Kenilworth Street South, she often shared her talent with others through teaching art. Alma Sawbridge exhibited with the Women’s Arts Association of Hamilton and was a listed active member. Sawbridge’s paintings range from scenes of Ontario to Western Canada to paintings of Cape Cod. She also painted portraits, urban, rural and seas-scapes. For many years, Sawbridge and her husband travelled to Cape Cod and Gloucester where her husband would fish from the pier, while she painted the boats in the harbour area.
