Spotlight Artist

Spotlight reception on Friday, Aug. 4th, 5 – 7 pm

Don Farrell to host his first Golden Isles solo art exhibit at the Old Jail Art Center

Don’s magnificent photorealistic use of water media captures the light and texture of the local scenery and wildlife beautifully.  From feathered birds to wooden boats to sandy surf, Don has mastered both media and subject.

In addition to his watercolor works, Mr. Farrell’s show will include his Haiku poetry illustrations from one of the four books in which he collaborated with his wife and writer, Janis Hogan.

More about Don:

A long-time illustrator and graphic designer, Mr. Farrell began focusing his artistic talents on scenes and wildlife indicative of life along the South Georgia Shore after moving to Saint Simons Island in 2019. One of his works was recently selected to represent the Ocmulgee Audobon Society logo. He was also awarded first, second and third prizes in professional watercolorist category at the Jekyll Island Artists Association annual juried art show in March 2023.

In addition to his watercolor works, Mr. Farrell has illustrated four books with his wife and writer, Janis Hogan. All four books, including two children’s storybooks, are available on Amazon and at Goodyear Cottage on Jekyll Island.  An illustrated book of poetry can also be purchased at McIntosh Art Association and at The Market at Sea Island.

He is a member of McIntosh Art Association, Jekyll Artist Association and the Southern Watercolor Society.

A graduate of Catholic University, Washington, DC, with a major in Fine Art, Mr. Farrell has owned and operated Farrell Design, LLC for more than 30 years.
