I knew the book would become a conduit for locating other artworks by Danny Allen.
I’m very excited to announce that another of Danny’s paintings has surfaced. This piece, a rather large non-objective color-field painting with graphic lines is part of a private collection in Woodstock, New York. It was originally purchased by a Rochester designer who later gifted it to his sister. When the sister became aware of the book, she came forward with the piece she owns so that our records of Dan’s art might be that much more complete. This piece is particularly special, as it’s one of Dan’s larger works. (I’m waiting for a return reply as to the exact measurements, but it’s an acrylic and about 30″ x 40″.) This will most certainly be included in a second printing of the book. I’m not going to further “tumble” the book design as art by Danny Allen surfaces–but rather add to the addendum at the back of the book.
If anyone reading this blog knows of the whereabouts of any other pieces by Danny Allen, please contact me here at the blog–or on Facebook under the page for An Early Work Late in Life.
This past weekend I had a reading and book signing at PROUD Bookstore in Rehoboth, Delaware. PROUD is a small venue, but a few loyal readers and friends stopped by for wine, cheese and a reading. I’m continuing to look for other venues for readings and have a couple irons in the fire.
