Welcome to the Leonard Pearlstein Gallery
Founded in 1986 Drexel’s Design Arts Gallery was housed in Nesbitt Hall on Market Street as part of the Nesbitt College of Design Arts. In 2003, the gallery moved into its own small building alongside Nesbitt Hall. A generous contribution from the Pearlstein family to honor their father Leonard Pearlstein made the new Nesbitt gallery building possible. Now part of the Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, The Leonard Pearlstein Gallery relocated to its third and current location in Drexel’s URBN Annex at 3401 Filbert Street at the end of 2011.
Warp + Weft: Work by Caroline Lathan-Stiefel
We are pleased to present a solo exhibition of installation, sculpture and drawings by 2015 Pew Fellow in the Arts Caroline Lathan-Stiefel. Her expansive and delicate pieces turn everyday materials into seemingly weightless, wonderful objects. Playful and meticulous, Lathan-Stiefel's installations are reminiscent of textile, incorporating sewn elements of plastic, wire, string, fabric, pipe cleaners and fishing weights. For this exhibition the artist expand her processes to include welding, aluminum casting and bent neon.
