NYC SOLO SHOW 2022 | RETURN TO SOURCE
Don's latest solo show, a survey of paintings and his assemblage work, ran June 14th through July 9th at Pleiades Gallery in the Chelsea Gallery District, New York City. Return to Source was curated by Marianna Winterdale - curator, DTP designer, and photographer living in New York City. For the show Mari chose a mix of recent paintings, assemblage work and some older pieces to tell a story on each wall of the artist's philosophy and development.
January 2022- Don Perley was selected to be one of the artists of PLEIADES GALLERY, 547 West 27th Street, New York City, in the Landmark Arts Building.
