American artist Jane Peterson (1876–1965) is considered one of the foremost female painters of her time in the United States. This exhibition is a collection of work that highlights the artist’s lively and colorful use of oil paint, featuring vivid floral still lifes and expressive portraits.

Peterson’s use of bold color and loose brush strokes seem to convey an artist who was both delighted and determined to live life on her own terms. Educated at Pratt and the Art Students League in New York City, her talents landed her in the same social circles as Picasso, Matisse, and Gertrude Stein. Considered Impressionistic and Expressionist in style, with many solo exhibitions and even more patrons, Peterson knew great success as a working artist. Many of her celebrated works can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of the City of New York, the National Museum of Women in the Arts and Hirshhorn Museum in Washington D.C, and Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Philadelphia Museum of Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with the *Walter Manninen Trust.

All indoor events that are open to the public require attendees to wear a mask—regardless of vaccination status. The mask mandate extends to all attendees—including students, faculty, staff, and guests.

Events that fall into this category include indoor concerts, performances, and gallery shows. Vaccinated performers may be exempt from wearing masks.

While our high vaccination rate positions the Endicott community well over the threshold for herd immunity, we acknowledge there are situations where our population will be interacting with large numbers of the general public on our campus.
