Willimantic, Conn. - John O'Donnell, adjunct professor of art at Eastern Connecticut State University will be featured in numerous art exhibitions for the fall 2013 semester. O'Donnell teaches painting and drawing at Eastern. His solo exhibition, "Ponzi Structure," will be featured at Real Art Ways in Hartford, CT, until Sept. 29. "The title refers to a Ponzi scheme, a fraudulent investment operation, much similar to a pyramid scheme," said O'Donnell. "These structures and systems are built on deception and bound to fail."
O'Donnell will also present drawings of dinosaurs in the "Hartford DADA" exhibition at the Pumphouse Gallery in Hartford, CT. The exhibit will open 5-9 p.m. on Sept. 26 and will run through Nov. 1.
He will also take part in an exhibition titled "New Prints 2013/Autumn" at the International Print Center New York (IPCNY) in New York, NY. The opening reception will take place on Nov. 7, and the exhibit will be open from Oct. 29 through Nov. 30.
Lastly, O'Donnell will present a large-scale watercolor in the exhibition, "Habitat" at Manchester Community College's Hans Weiss Newspace Gallery in Manchester, CT. It will be curated by Susan Classen-Sullivan.
The exhibit will run from Oct. 24 through Dec. 4, with the opening reception at 6 p.m. on Oct. 24. O'Donnell can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
