Donald Pentz lives and works in Nova Scotia. He completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Mount Allison University in 1966, and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Regina in 1979. He is an elected member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts (RCA) and the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour (CSPWC).
Donald has been featured in many solo and group exhibitions over the years. His works can be found numerous in public and private collections, including the Canada Council Art Bank, Nova Scotia Art Bank, and several university collections.
My main painting influences come from the coastline of Nova Scotia and the Kejimkujik lakes. My works have included both realistic landscape imagery, as well as non-objective abstract paintings. Major works are done in the studio, but I also sketch with watercolour on location to satisfy my Group of Seven itch. My preferred mediums are acrylic, watercolour and pen-ink. I am currently involved in a series of black and white images on over-sized paper, featuring the moon associated with an archeological or cultural object.
