About

Carol Putman began painting alongside her father while he attended art school in Los Angeles, CA. Joe Putman studied at Woodbury College and the Bisttram School of Fine Arts taking classes with Bene Duer, Mrs. Georgia Richards, and Emil Bisttram [see also http://www.emil-bisttram.com ].

During her studies at California State University, Sacramento, CA, Carol was introduced to "en plein air" [in the open air] and she continues to paint and draw in this manner whenever possible. ■ Carol has exhibited in juried shows in Northern California at Ironstone Vineyards, Los Gatos Art Museum, Santa Cruz Art League, Bedford Gallery, and Walnut Creek Civic Arts among others. She has participated in a number of Valona Paint Outs hosted by Epperson Gallery in Valona, CA, the Walnut Creek Centennial Paintout hosted by Valley Art Gallery, Walnut Creek, CA, the Walnut Creek Turns 100: The City Through Art exhibit at Bedford Gallery, Walnut Creek, CA, and the Port Costa Art Show in Port Costa, CA ■ Carol is a member of the California Art Club.
