Marjorie Love Sutton Biography

Marjorie Love Sutton




Marjorie Love Sutton was born Marjorie E. Love to John King and Magdalene Love in Easton, Pennsylvania on 17 November 1912. She attended the Easton Area High School but no other school affiliation has come to light. Her work in printmaking is so sophisticated that she had to have studied under very influential artists. By 1947, Marjorie Love was married to Jay Sutton and they lived for a time in Easton before moving to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. From the Cape they moved to Englewood, Florida and she was a member of the Sarasota and the Englewood Art Associations. Marjorie served as a juror for the Saratoga Art Association's 16th Southeastern Exhibition of Contemporary American Painters in 1955. In 1957, the Englewood Art Association hosted an exhibition of her prints and the oils of Jay Sutton. Records indicate that Jay Sutton started a career in real estate in Florida. In 1974 they moved to Sarasota, Florida and Marjorie E. Love Sutton died in Sarasota, Florida on 22 December 1974.
