Artist Biography:
Dana Donaty was raised in New Jersey, coming with a unique blend of Colombian, Peruvian, Italian, Irish and American backgrounds. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing from Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia, PA. After living in London, England for twelve years she relocated in 2006 to Florida, where she now lives and works.

Widely recognized for her provocative canvases with unusual narrative, Donaty’s unmistakable satirical lexicon is a perfect collision of reality and fantasy, outlandish burlesque, psychological flirtation and a super charged palette that is like a party about to get thoroughly out of control.
She has completed many award winning public art projects, featured in over 50 national and international publications. She has garnered multiple awards within the design industry, as she has been sought after to create unique commissions for high profile residential and commercial projects.

Her work has been exhibited at The Cornell Museum of Art, as well as international art fairs like Art Palm Beach, Art Boca Raton, the American International Fine Art Fair, Scope and major group shows throughout Florida. Selected solo shows include ‘Reality Check’ sponsored by South Florida Ford; Paul Fisher Gallery in Palm Beach, Coral Springs Museum of Art and The Ora Sorensen Gallery in Palm Beach. Her work is in both public and private collections in the US, and Europe.

Jen Fisher at the Spotlight Gallery Cornell Art Museum

Spotlight Gallery Feature: Jen Fisher
Saturday, June 2, 2018 10:00 AM

Cornell Art Museum at Old School Square
51 North Swinton Avenue Delray Beach, FL, 33444

The Cornell Art Museum at Old School Square in Delray Beach, FL is proud to feature South Florida artist, Jen Fisher, in our #SpotlightGallery for the June First Friday Art Walk on Friday, June 1st, an open house for the art galleries in downtown Delray Beach! Join us for light bites and refreshments as well as view our current exhibition, Flora, from 6-9PM.

Influenced from her background in interior design, Jen Fisher’s art has developed from the desire to create on a smaller and more tangible scale. Using similar principles of proportion, contrast and color, her work allows her to organize creative thoughts via an alternate medium, and on a more intuitive level. A Retrospective on Perspective has evolved through Jen’s love of sketching, perspective drawing and her constant desire to explore new materials.

Artist spotlight: Ryan Myers

Ryan Myers is a ceramic artist living in Madison, Wisconsin [with his studio in Fitchburg].

Artist statement [Excerpted from http://www.ryanmyersceramics.com/about/]

I was raised on cartoons and comic books, superheroes and villains. I grew up around Native American artifacts and American antiques. I learned to appreciate the intimate qualities of aged objects: the textures of rusty iron and crawling paint on old furniture, and even the musty smell of ripened books and magazines. Things that come with embedded narrative and a worn history have always surrounded me, and therefore, influence me. I am attracted to nostalgia and drawn to the curious — to something unusual but familiar — to something that creates a linkage across time.
