Painter, poet, designer and feminist are only a few of the words that describe the multifaceted early 20th-century artist Florine Stettheimer (1871-1944), one of the undersung pioneers of modern painting in America. Florine Stettheimer: Painting Poetry—the first major exhibition of her work in North America in twenty years, and the first ever in Canada—will offer fresh ways of thinking about her art both within its time, and as it resonates now within our own moment. It promises to delight audiences new to Stettheimer’s work. For those familiar with her work—especially her playful, vibrant, and psychologically complex paintings—it will offer fresh ways of understanding the lasting impact of both Stettheimer’s art and catalytic presence within some of the most innovative creative communities of her time.
