Batten Hour: Danny Doughty

Feb. 19, 2018, 11:30 a.m.

As a visionary folk artist, Danny’s paintings stretch the boundaries of realism in his mastery of color, texture, and pattern. Many of his new works have a rich abstract quality that tell his remarkable story. 

Danny lives on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, where he grew up. However, his work has shown and been appreciated throughout the country for several decades. Primarily known on the east coast, Danny is well recognized for his visionary use of acrylic paint to tell his unique story. Today he partners with the Red Queen Gallery in Onancock, Virginia. The gallery works with Danny to show his work and provides a beautiful historic space to showcase his larger work.
