Mary Putman: Art is About Us

February 16 –  March 26, 2023

For the Delaware-based painter Mary Putman, art is—and has always been—about us. Putman’s focus on the landscape over the course of her prolific career has allowed her to probe this simple yet powerful statement. Her paintings explore the vast and complicated interconnections between the land and its occupants. Putman meticulously depicts the world she lives in, representing recognizable buildings, farmland, cars, road signs, bridges, people, animals, trees, and bodies of water from unusual and sometimes surprising perspectives. As a result, her paintings often combine the familiar with the unfamiliar, drawing viewers in to visually examine the landscape of Delaware and its surrounding areas so we can see ourselves anew.

An exhibition catalogue co-authored by the University of Delaware and the Biggs Museum of American Art will be available on March 2.
