Button The Exhibition

The Plattsburgh State Art Museum wishes to express appreciation to Marion Wagschal for lending her boundless energy to the development of this exhibition and to James Campbell for his insightful essay. The exhibition would not have been possible without the help of my co-curator, Jacqueline Stoneberger, who introduced us to Marion’s work in the exhibition Made in Canada (2001), and worked with both Marion and myself in the selection of the exhibition.

We are grateful to the lenders of the exhibition including: The Ludmer Art Limited Partnership, Gordon Collection- Galerie de Bellefeuille, Musée national des beaux-arts dú Québec, Sandra Goodwin Collection, Musée d’Art de Joliette, Indra Kagis McEwen Collection, Dr. and Mrs. A.D. Taliano, several private collections, and works lent by the artist.

A project of this scale is only made possible with the financial support of several organizations and departments on campus including: College Auxiliary Services, Plattsburgh State Student Association, The Friends of Art, Winkel Endowment of the Plattsburgh College Foundation, The Center for the Study of Canada, and the State of New York.

The very capable staff manages the coordination of the various facets necessary to stage an exhibition at the Museum. The diligent work of Mary L. Beauharnois, Designer; Marjorie Coughlin, Secretary; David Driver, Installations/Preparator; Cecilia Esposito, Collections Specialist; and Marguerite Eisinger, Docent Coordinator. The Docents, a volunteer group that contribute hundreds of hours each year to the Museum, and several dedicated students who keep the galleries open and insure that our exhibitions are available to the campus and regional community. My sincere thanks.

Edward R. Brohel, Director
