This exhibition is the first comprehensive survey of paintings and works on paper to highlight the long and productive career of Prochownik, one of Western New York’s most beloved artists. It includes 93 paintings and works on paper, demonstrating the visual, social, and intellectual impact that he had on the community.

Prochownik was a beloved faculty member of Millard Fillmore College and UB’s Department of Art from 1961 to 1995 when he was appointed Professor Emeritus upon his retirement. Prior to his death in 2000, Prochownik preferred always to show current work.

In conjunction with this exhibition, two silk painting workshops will be held from 6pm – 8:30pm on August 17 and August 31.
