Don Wilson

“Italian Works and More”

June 30, 2014 – August 23, 2014
Artist Reception: Saturday, July 12th 2:00-4:00 pm

Don Wilson began life on a family farm in Bethpage, the Beau SeJour, which operated from 1908 to 1974. His 43 year academic career has included work with children and adults as Library Media Specialist, Public Librarian, Assistant Professor of Library Science, and University Administrator. He has also tried his hand at restaurateur, cook and caterer.

Don is now reviving his early love of painting. He has studied at the Atelier Gallery, the Parrish Art Museum, and Jada in Greenport, and with artist Diane Alec Smith in Cutchogue. He paints in acrylic on different surfaces, canvas, wood and glass. His paintings are bright, boldly colored, realistic interpretations of what he sees and feels. He spends a lot of time painting at his cottage home on the North Fork, inspired by the farms, the sea, the shore, and the Long Island landscape. “I love painting old homes, barns, farm stands, water front scenes, commercial fishing boats, pleasure crafts, and boats sailing by at sunset. You can’t beat it.”

Don has exhibited in galleries and vineyards on the North Fork and in public libraries in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. He was the featured artist in the August Gallery Walk in Greenport, and was on the cover of Dan’s Papers in February 2008 and October 2011.
