Artwork of Florence Putterman to Be Featured in Exhibition
Published on July 29, 2011
SELINSGROVE—The work of former Susquehanna University art instructor Florence Putterman is the focus of an exhibition titled "Entwined Metaphors," opening August 22 at the Villanova University Art Gallery. A free public reception to meet the artist will take place on Sept. 9 from 5 to 7 p.m. The solo showing of paintings, prints, sculptures and collages runs through Oct. 5.
Putterman has gained an international reputation as a postmodern painter/printmaker noted for the narration that she injects into her quasi-abstract, surreal depictions of animals, sea creatures, birds and humans coexisting in riotous, sometimes edgy harmony.
Putterman’s pieces have been featured in more than 100 solo art exhibitions. Her work is included in more than 75 museum, corporate and university collections, and in many hospitals and other not-for-profit spaces through gifts from the Florence Putterman Foundation.
