Margaret Sutton, a 1926 graduate of the State Teachers College, now UMW, was a prolific artist, and most of her drawings, paintings, and correspondence is in the collection of UMW Galleries. Students in Professor Och’s ARTH 317: Laboratory in Museum Studies have curated an exhibition from this extraordinary archive. The works span much of Sutton’s career, from 1936 through the 1970s, decades of remarkable developments in American art centered in New York City, Sutton’s home for this entire period.

Margaret Sutton: Face to Face opens April 19 in the Convergence Gallery of Simpson Library. The opening reception is from 5:00 to 7:00 pm and is free and open to the public.

This exhibition is made possible with support from the Department of Art and Art History, UMW Galleries, the Museum Studies Program, Simpson Library, the Convergence Gallery, Alfred Levitt, and the students in ARTH 317.
