An Artist’s Studio: The Art, Objects, & Inspiration That Surrounds Don Carney

originally posted October 15, 2011

This past Thursday, I attended a gallery opening at Clic Bookstore &  Gallery  called “An Artist’s Studio: The Art, Objects, & Inspiration That Surrounds Don Carney” at 255 Centre Street, NYC.  The show runs from October 13 – November 13, 2011. For the show, Don recreated a studio environment inside the gallery.  The space  includes art, antiques, one-of-a-kind objects, and assorted inspiration from Carney’s studio. Carney’s unique ink drawings on paper is also on display. These drawings, displayed in vintage frames, recall woodblock textiles from the 1940’s.

Don Carney was born and raised in Massachusetts where he studied illustration at the Art Institute of Boston. He divides his time between homes in New York City and Cambridge, Massachusetts. He is the co-founder of PATCH NYC.

Recent exhibitions/showings include: RAW (Milan), Barneys New York, Louis Boston, Astier De Villatte (Paris), ABC Carpet & Home (NYC), Hudson city Antiques (NYC), Bon (Tucson).
