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.

Where the Artists Are (in their studios)

This winter the Pearlstein will show the work of 3 artists. Sculpture by Lewis Colburn, drawings and paintings by Anda Dubinskis, & drawings by Mark Stockton.

By examining several years of each artists’ work the show will explore the intellectual and technical characteristics that distinguish their daily working routines; what draws them into in their studios, excites them, and keeps them there. Studio work is how artists spend their days. This show looks at three artists and how their experiments, frustrations, discoveries and digressions eventually grow into cohesive bodies of work.
