His art and design work has been featured in the New York Times and elsewhere. For fifteen years, until 2020, Scherer taught art history and design at the State University of New York at Oneonta. William Abranowicz’s photographs are in collections worldwide and have appeared in nearly every major publication. His books include American Originals: Creative Interiors.
