Don Porcella – Studio Visit

A few moths back we stopped in on Don Porcella during his residency at the Museum of Arts and Design on Columbus Circle in NYC. The work we saw and the man we met left a very strong positive impression. Naturally, we were eager to set up this studio visit to share more of Don’s art and offer a glimpse into his process.

There are plenty of opportunities to see Porcella’s work around the city over the next year. He is currently slated to be included in group shows at both the Industries for the Blind and the Children’s Museum of Art this September and a three person exhibit at the ISE Cultural Foundation in March of 2013.

It has also just been announced that Porcella has been selected as a winner of the highly sought after West Collects Prize for 2012. His installation, “There They Remain in the Drain of the Mainframe Food Chain,” will be exhibited this Fall at the West space in Oaks, Pennsylvania.

A book about his artwork is forthcoming as well as an ebook of artist interviews that he has conducted. Don is also releasing a limited edition screen print through our gallery, NOWhere Limited this Summer.
