    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.
