CEPA Gallery is proud to administer the Annual Oseroff Memorial Purchase Prize on behalf of the Roswell Park Cancer Institute and the Roswell Park Alliance Art Committee.
Named in memory of Dr. Allan R. Oseroff, the Chief of Dermatology from 1989 until his death in 2008, the Oseroff Memorial Purchase Prize is awarded each year to one regional or national photographer who has a connection to Western New York and whose artwork is identified as being of exceptional quality. Dr. Oseroff, a world-renowned expert in photodynamic therapy, had a life-long interest in photography and the visual arts. He was an empathetic physician who blended true caring with the latest scientific advances to become greatly loved by his patients and fellow staff.
The prize is supported by an endowment from grateful patients and friends with a major contribution from his wife, Dr. Stephanie Pincus, and children Ben, Tamara and Matt. The prizes are designed to enhance the environment for all members of the Roswell Community.
