Don Gene Bell (1935-..)

Dear friends,

Don Gene Bell was born in 1935 in Indiana.
He was raised in Dayton and rural Indiana. After attending the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts he became a designer in a studio there. During a stint in the army he became artist in the Helicopter headquarters in Ludwigsburgh, Germany. Bell then attended Indiana University where he received his BA and MFA degrees. While there he studied with George Sadek. Bell worked as an artist for the Indiana University Educational Television and was a curator and designer for the Indiana University Museum. He then moved to Binghamton, New York where he worked as a teacher at the State University of New York. Bell has participated in numerous exhibitions of his work in and around New York, including the Leslie-Lohman Gay Art Foundation. Since the website on leslielohman.org (the place where his work was previously published) is no longer there, I cannot be sure that all pictures below actually are created by him. Latest news was that he now lives and works in Tucson, Arizona.
