The Outsider Art of Donald T. Dunphy
“The Outsider Art of Donald T. Dunphy” was released in December 2020. The Middletown based artist passed away in October 2019 at the age of 82. He had never expressed an interest in artistic expression until his late 70s after his wife had passed away and he picked up the paints she once used. What happened next was a lesson in how art can heal and people can grow. It’s a book of artwork compiled by his son in the months that followed to let his father’s work and his story be known.

It meant an hours-long commute over the border every day. Trillo went on to become a painter, but Donald Trump’s hateful comments about Mexicans when he was first running for president caused her to make a radical shift. She had to show the people she knew.
