Modern abstract expressionist painting by Ithaca NY artist Dorothy Hoyt Dillingham.
Dorothy Hoyt Dillingham, wife of former Ithaca College president Howard Dillingham and an influential contributor to both the Ithaca community and College. An accomplished artist, Mrs. Dillingham received both B.S. and M.A. degrees from Cornell University and had her first one-person art show in New York City in 1947. Her paintings have been shown at galleries around the world, notably the Whitney, and continue to grace the Ithaca College campus which the Dillingham’s had built over looking Cayuga Lake on the south hill. In 1956 she was awarded the Grumbacher Award for Oils by the National Association of Women Artists, and in 1958 the same organization awarded her the Medal of Honor for Graphics. During the same time period she was also presented the Jane Peterson Award for Oils and the Mary Kelner Award for Graphics.
