Sharon Barfoot has worked in the arts for 40 years as an instructor, curator, textile artist and painter. Her studies include Fine Arts at University of Western Ontario and Textile Arts at Sheridan College. These studies led to several positions in costuming at Stratford Festival Theatre and several smaller local theatres.  She has been an active supporter of the arts in Bruce County since relocating here 20 years ago.

Sharon’s past experience includes Director of the Southampton Art School and a board member of the Southampton Arts Society (now the Southampton Arts).  She also served on the board of the Bluewater Outdoor Education Centre in Wiarton and the boards of the Bruce Trail Association and Gallery 96 in Stratford Ontario.

“Southampton Arts has been ‘home’ for me for several years and I strongly believe this organization is an influencer in the arts and has been for over 60 years.  I feel fortunate to be a part of this journey.”
