Putney Painters Art Show in Madison

I ducked out on Friday night to see the Art show for some of the Putney Painters at Susan Powell Fine Art in Madison. It was jam packed when I got there. The place is tiny, but it was full of interested artists and art lovers. The wine was flowing and the food was exotic and delicious. But the best part was viewing the paintings. They were definitely influenced by the Putney style, with bright colors and a painterly style reminiscent of Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik. Many of the paintings sold early. I especially liked Kathy Anderson's renderings of flower arrangements and Katy Swatland's marshes and sailboat scenes. Kathy was there, oohing at all of the great work as well. It was definitely an impressive display of good artwork.
