Donato Arts

397 Pacific Street

Brooklyn, NY 11217

New paintings from the 2015 George R.R. Martin A Song of Ice and Fire Calendar will be fresh back from the Society of Illustrators, including oils from my work for National Geographic, Tor Books, Magic: The Gathering, Middle-earth, Disney, and many other projects over the past few years. Scores of sketches and preliminary drawings never before exhibited at conventions or galleries will also be laid out for perusal.

Discounted prints, books and DVD's will be available to those who make the trip.

I've included a few shots of works already hanging as well as a sample of the pieces to be on display throughout the four floors. As much as is shown here, it is just a teaser for what will be on exhibition!

A new monumental canvas of Beren and Luthien in the Court of Thingol and Melian, from J.R.R. Tolkien's the Silmarillion is in progress in the studio for those who would like an early peek at a work in development. The final canvas will be 9' x 5'.

I will be present the entire afternoon, so feel free to stop by and talk some art!

The photo is unrelated, I actually have a photo of Donato rolling around in here somewhere from the Chesleys, but I can't find it easily. If you go, ask him how to paint metal--he will give you some of the most valuable tips you'll ever get (he teaches as well as paints).
