Denaro’s Overseas Collection
Meet artist Tom Denaro at this reception for his current show in the Community Room
Hudson Valley-based artist Thomas Denaro, gets his inspiration from the traditions of past pen and ink artist. His inspirations vary from local Orange County settings to breathtaking international scenery. His pen-and-ink drawings become a value study creating tonal nuances with a unique crosshatching effect. These tonal values give his elements instinctive textures of stone, brick, wood siding, and other man-made materials by forming a sense of realism with the viewer.
“I try to use areas of light and dark for balance and to continually draw the viewers’ eye throughout the drawing. I want to keep their interest so each time they view my art, there is something new to see.”
Denaro also creates first-edition, hand-embellishment to add back the color to the subject matter. This gives the art buyer a choice of the drawing’s appeal through nature’s color or solely the visual charm of the black & white subject. Having studied illustration and advertising at Paier College of Art from 1975 – 1979, Tom has leveraged his talents to become a technical illustrator, perfecting his style through works on paper. He has traveled the world capturing images that have inspired many of his cityscapes.Location:AWPL Community RoomAge Group:Adult

(2018) Starring Catherine Keener and Jeanne Tripplehorn. A small-town nurse named Susette Kelo emerges as the reluctant leader of her working-class neighbors in their struggle to save their homes from political and corporate interests bent on seizing the land and handing it over to Pfizer Corporation. Susette's battle goes all the way to the US Supreme Court and the controversial 5-4 decision in Kelo vs. City of New London gave government officials the power to bulldoze a neighborhood for the benefit of a multibillion-dollar corporation. The decision outraged Americans across the political spectrum, and that passion fueled reforms that helped curb eminent domain abuse. Rated PG; 98 min. Discussion and refreshments to follow.Location:AWPL Community RoomAge Group:Adult
