The Crossman Gallery will be exhibiting their collection of Leon Pescheret Prints and Graphics beginning April 19 and continuing through April 28.

The exhibit opens with a reception from 5-7 pm on Thursday, April 19. The reception and exhibit are free of charge and open to everyone.

Thanks to a generous gift from UWW alumnus Michael J. Cesario ’71, the university’s collection of Leon Pescheret prints and graphic works have been newly rematted and framed. This inaugural exhibit is set to coincide with the Sesquicentennial Celebration and will feature a selection from the over 170 works that were conserved.

Mr. Pescheret (March 15, 1892 – February 23, 1971) spent much of his working career living in Whitewater. His research into printmaking techniques took him to Europe and our collection includes images of historic architecture in England and France as well as the United States. Scenes of Whitewater are well represented, as are landscapes, seascapes, and images from the Southwest where he moved after closing up his studio in Whitewater.
