In 1929, her pictures were also seen at the Pacific International Salon of Photographic Art, sponsored by the Oregon Camera Club and hung at the Portland Art Museum. The same year, oversees juries accepted her work for the Internationella Fotografi Utstallningen in Goteborg, Sweden, and the photography salon presented as part of Barcelonaís Artes Decorativas de la Exposicion Internacio. In 1930, her venues included the photographic salon sponsored by the Camera Pictorialists of Los Angeles and the Terzo Salon Italiano díArte Fotografica Internazionale in Turin, Italy.
A print of Seatonís photograph Snow Shovellers is part of the museumís permanent collection. It is an elevated view of men working on a wide sidewalk, probably made in Brooklyn.
