Peter Schreyer: Returning Home

Born and educated in Switzerland, Peter Schreyer immigrated to the United States in 1978. Executive Director of Crealdé since 1995, he previously served as the school's Director of Photography. His extensive teaching experience includes award-winning outreach programs in under-served communities. Since 1980 his black and white landscape and documentary photography has been included in more than 100 one-person, juried, and invitational exhibitions across the United States and Switzerland. Schreyer has received a wide range of public art commissions, research grants, and recognition awards for his black and white documentary photography on Florida communities. In 1993/94 he was one of three Central Floridians to receive a Visual Arts Fellowship Grant from the State of Florida. Schreyer is the founder of the Hannibal Square Heritage Center, a cultural facility that celebrates community heritage through documentary photography, oral history and public art. In 2009 he was named Arts Educator of the Year by United Arts of Central Florida.

Widely known for his photography of Florida, this exhibition focuses on the artist’s recent work of Switzerland, in particular the people and places of the village where he was born. The exhibition provides an opportunity to discuss the significance of place and fosters cultural exchange.
