Gerald A. Pogach (1929 -1996) was a Philadelphia-based painter, sculptor, and educator, served on the Board of the Brandywine Workshop, and taught in the public schools of Philadelphia. The Gerald A. Pogach Scholarship Fund provides for summer internship stipends at Brandywine for art students (grades 10-12th) attending School District of Philadelphia high schools. The purpose of the internships is to develop students artistic talent by working with master printmakers, mature artists in the printmaking studios and assisting staff while learning collections care and management, arts administration and program planning.

A memorial exhibition of Pogach’s work, curated by several of his professional colleagues and friends, was held at Brandywine in 1998. Proceeds from the sale of works at that exhibition, as well as contributions raised through the efforts of his widow, Mary Kilroy Pogach, were used to create the fund that honors him.

More recently, the estate of the artist, which is managed by his widow Mary Kilroy Pogach, and the Brandywine printshop collaborated on a re-imagined image of one of Pogach’s early paintings to create a limited edition print, Interstellar, an 11 -color wood cut using digital technology and computer numeric cutting. The edition of 40 prints sells separately for $1,000 with free shipping. All proceeds benefit the Scholarship Fund.
