Perrone, who has been painting for over 50 years, grew up in Harlem and graduated from the prestigious Cooper Union Art School. He won a scholarship to study painting at Oxford University in England and pursued a career as a book designer and art director at Reader’s Digest where he worked for 38 years. He has had several solo shows and his paintings are in private collection throughout the US and Europe. Today, he lives in Oxford, CT but looks back fondly at his time in New York.

The city is in my blood,” says Perrone. “I’m interested in depicting it in all aspects, trying to show its vibrancy from dusk ’til dawn, from roof tops to traffic jams.” Gunn Memorial Library is located at 5 Wykeham Road at the juncture of Route 47 opposite the Green in Washington, CT. Library hours may be found on our website, www.gunnlibrary.org. For more information call (860)868-7586 or email the library circulation desk, gunncirc@biblio.org.
