Don Gialanella, Sculptor

Don originally spoke to the Club on July 12 but due to local flooding only a few members were able to get to the meeting.  Host Art Lewis and Speaker Don Gialanella have arranged to repeat the program, hopefully for more members this time.

Donald Gialanella, originally from Maplewood, NJ, now works out of his studio in St. Petersburg, Florida. After earning a BFA from The Cooper Union, Donald apprenticed with Louise Bourgeois, an influential figure in modern and contemporary art. He worked as a graphics producer at ABC-TV in New York in the 1980’s and received an Emmy for his work on Monday Night Football in 1990.  With an international teaching appointment at Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey and a host of public sculpture commissions to his credit, Gialanella’s art career has been prolific and wide-ranging.
