Ogden Minton Pleissner (1905-1983) was a WWII artist for LIFE magazine and then a nationally recognized landscape and sporting arts painter. Pleissner Gallery, built in 1986, features 40 of the Museum’s 600 Pleissner works in a rotating exhibition.
The gallery shows watercolors and oil paintings from all periods of Pleissner’s career, including early renderings, Western landscapes, works from war-torn France and England, and sporting scenes.
An adjoining room re-creates his Manchester, Vermont studio with his canvases, brushes, and personal memorabilia.
