Don Perley is a self-taught artist who began his career in 1975 after finishing his college years in New Jersey. Originally from the Midwest, as he lived in various parts of the country he has had gallery affiliations with the Dana Reich Gallery, San Francisco showing collage (circa 1978), and later with Schmidt/Dean Gallery in Philadelphia, Albert Shahinian Fine Arts in upstate New York, and what was The Flow of Art Gallery in Norwalk, Connecticut, showing paintings.

He currently lives in Stamford, Connecticut, where he continues his experiments in oils on canvas and painted collage constructions.

These days I am just concerned with liberating color from the cruel tyranny of confinement in the tube!
