    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.

    Please join us in welcoming New York Times-bestselling author Allison Pataki for a discussion of her newly-published memoir about the harrowing year after her husband suffered a debilitating stroke at age thirty and about his difficult road to recovery.  Described as a “manifesto for living,” the book is an uplifting story about the transformative power of faith and resilience.  Pataki is also the author of Sisi, The Traitor’s Wife, and The Accidental Empress, and is the daughter of former New York State Governor George E. Pataki.  A book signing will follow the discussion.
