This gallery is for BVAA member Don Iacovelli.
I am a retired public school music teacher who treasures the arts in all its formats. I am also a composer and performer.
When I retired from teaching I turned my creative energy to painting. My style is folk art and was influenced by the works of Grandma Moses and her great-grandson Will Moses, who has become my mentor.
The folk art style brings to mind a kinder, gentler time of community, family, activities, and love. My paintings try to incorporate children and adults at play, cozy homes and neighborhoods.

Don Iacovelli has – for some reason – left off his artist’s bio that he was a master teacher of the arts for decades in Holliston.

Don understands the interplay between painting and music – and the idea that arts enrich our lives in a synergistic fashion.
My name is Karine.
I purchase a beautiful work of Don Iacovelli yesterday and I love it!
Thank you Mr. Iacovelli!
