February 29 – December 13, 2020

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the Peto Museum of Island Heights highlighted the contributions of the many Women of Peto, including John F. Peto’s daughter Helen (who was a watercolorist); his female students (including Emily Perkins); and art and artifacts of other Peto family members. The history of Peto’s granddaughter Joy Smiley’s life growing up in the Studio is also explored, as well as the works of some of the founding members of the Peto Museum (Jean Wetta, Alice Askoff and Sarah Punderson).

This Exhibit is also featured as an Online Exhibition as it was exhibited during 2020, the year of Covid19. View the show online below.
