Scherer in AMNH Hall Preparation, 1934

WELCOME to As my father, Fred Scherer’s new site is launched, I feel barely up to the task. Here is another beginning, of keeping his art and his life’s work present. I want to hear from you if you’ve got additions, corrections, stories, or insights, or images that you want to share. If you have painted with Fred or been influenced or inspired by him, please share your  own work or a link. Send to
