Description

Louise Peterson (1920-2009) opened Galleries International in Winter Park, Florida, in 1969 with an impetus on exhibiting emerging artists and introducing the original print medium to the Central Florida market. These "educational practices" were well received by the community, both in the private sector and especially those with corporate interests. A relationship with the Orlando Museum of Art and the Council of Arts and Sciences soon developed.

In 1984, Galleries International became the Albertson-Peterson Gallery when she partnered with long-time friend Judy Albertson. Louise Peterson was a member of the Council of 101 of the Orlando Museum of Art, advisory to the Committee of Acquisition of the 20th Century American prints for that museum and also a lecturer and juror for community and collegiate competitions.
