Don Stone



Stone began studying art at Gloucester High school in Massachusetts, with four years instruction of fine arts.  He continued his studies at Vesper George School of Art, Boston, to which he later returned as an instructor.  He studied privately with Paul Strisik, N.A., whom he credited with introducing him to the life of a plein-air painter.  

It was during his youth in Gloucester that Stone became deeply involved with the fisher people and their livelihood.  As a mature artist, while on Monhegan Island, Maine, he had the opportunity to portray this involvement to its fullest.

Don Stone was a member of the most prestigious organizations in America, including the National Academy of Design as an Academician (N.A.), the American Watercolor Society as a Dolphin fellow, The American Society of Marine Artists (as a fellow); The Hudson Valley Art Association, the Rockport Art Artists, the North Shore Art Association, Gloucester, and many others.

He had numerous one-man shows, and was included in international exhibitions, including the Royal Water Color Society, London.  His paintings are in many museums and prominent collections, including Dartmouth College; Marietta College, Ohio; the University of New Hampshire; the Museum of Mobile, Alabama; the Canton Art Institute, Ohio; Berkshire Community College, Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
Don Stone also won numerous awards, including two Greenshield Foundation Grants.
