We welcome artist Ron Donoughe for a colorful talk about his paintings of landscapes and neighborhoods in Western Pennsylvania.
Using the “en plein air” style –painting not in a studio but directly from nature– used by Van Gogh and Monet, his spirited works act as impressionistic recreations of everyday life on a particular day at a particular time.
Come experience your neighborhoods in a new light through the eyes of a gifted artist.
Refreshments will be served.
A native of Loretto, Pennsylvania now living in Pittsburgh, Ron Donoughe is best known for his realistic landscape paintings of Western Pennsylvania. He has a B.A. in Art Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and has studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California.
Like many painters he has held a variety of odd jobs – landscaper, gravedigger, chicken catcher, art teacher, museum installer, graphic designer, and college instructor.
He works full time now as a professional artist/painter. His work can be found in many corporate and private collections as well as the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, The Westmoreland Museum of American Art and The University Museum at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
