Gannon University Schuster Gallery Opens Changing Seasons

Posted: December 4, 2015

Changing Seasons, an exhibition of watercolors by Lee Steadman, will open at Gannon University's Schuster Gallery, 700 Peach St., on Dec. 4 with a public reception at 7 p.m.

The exhibition features 18 works by the McKean, Pennsylvania native whose work can be found in collections at The New York State Museum, the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History, the Leight Yawkey-Woodson Art Museum and the Smithsonian's Museum of Natural History.

Steadman's work has appeared nationwide in university galleries, one-person exhibitions, and invitational art shows.

An internationally recognized illustrator, Steadman has contributed to the National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America. His trip to the Galápagos as a field illustrator inspired the 51 Steadman watercolors included in "Galápagos: Discovery on Darwin's Island," (Smithsonian Institution Press, 1989). In 1993, Steadman illustrated "I Do and I Don't," written by children's television personality Fred Rogers.

The Schuster Gallery will be one of 10 local independent galleries that open their doors from 7 - 9 p.m. to give viewers a chance to explore the city's vibrant arts scene. Each gallery offers its own exhibitions, entertainment and refreshments free of charge.
