Description

Abernathy (1873-1956) was a landscape painter whose work is located at the New Deal Gallery, Mt. Morris. In order to support herself, she also was an art instructor at various colleges: Belmont College (TN), Stanford Female College (KY), Columbia Female Institute (TN), the University of Arkansas. Here, she is shown in the 1910 yearbook of the Florida State College for Women, in Tallahassee. She was a dedicated teacher; five years earlier, when a fire broke out Abernathy guided her students to safety rather than saving her own art and equipment; the Florida legislature passed a special bill to help compensate her loss.
