The Artist of the Month is a way for us to celebrate and highlight the talent from the local artists who sell work with us, by shining a spotlight on a different creative artist each month.
Don Neal is a retired geologist who taught in the Department of Geological Sciences at ECU for 40 years. Always a dabbler in art, he took to ceramics and painting upon retirement. Interest in texture and color has led him to abstract painting where color and texture allow for emotions to be revealed. Don takes inspiration from painters of the abstract expressionism school.
