Celebrated artist donates work to ‘Hurst


Celebrated as a painter, printmaker and teacher, Hubert Haisoch of Guelph, Ontario, Canada, recently returned to Mercyhurst University, where he taught from 1964 to 1968, to donate one of his art works. 

He was accompanied to campus July 11 by his daughter, Leah, and they lunched with three of his former students and local artists: Mercyhurst art professor Daniel Burke ‘69, Fran Schanz ‘71 and Mary Rosiak ‘76.

Haisoch donated a wood construction collage called “One Square Metre = 79 Feet” to the university, which is home to the annual Friends of Mercyhurst Art Show, curated each fall by Mary Gamble, wife of Mercyhurst President Tom Gamble.

Haisoch has taught at the elementary, secondary and university levels. He has maintained a studio since 1956 and shown in the local, regional and national categories. He is a recipient of numerous prizes and awards and is represented in private and corporate collections. Currently, he teaches adult art education, critiques works and does jurying.
