Susquehanna University to Exhibit Work of Florence Putterman
Published on September 5, 2011
Former Susquehanna University art instructor Florence Putterman will open a new exhibition on Sept. 13 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the university’s Blough-Weis Library. She will sign copies of her memoir, “Entwined Metaphors: Florence Putterman on Painting and Prints,” at the free public event.
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.
The exhibition runs through Nov. 18.
