Prints and Graphic Works by Leon Pescheret April 20 - 28 Founder's Day reception: April 21 The university's collection of Leon Pescheret's prints and graphic works have been newly re-matted and re-framed through a very generous grant from our alum Michael Cesario. This inaugural exhibit will feature over 170 works displayed to coincide with the university's Sesquicentennial Celebration. 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 his graphic works includes images of historic architecture in England and France as well as the United States. City scenes of Whitewater are well represented, as are seascapes and scenes from the Southwest where he moved after closing up his studio in Whitewater.
