Don Ventura was born in New York City where he has spent most of his life.  His interest in sculpture was manifested early but he did not pursue a serious career until he was almost 30. At that time he studied both drawing and sculpture at the Art Students’ League, in New York, where he later became a lifetime member. Afterwards he studied at the National Academy of Design, also in New York, where he received two scholarships and several awards. His work has since been exhibited in galleries throughout the country and is to be found in private collections both here and in Europe. In the mid-80’s he had a one-man exhibit at the National Arts Club, in New York.


As a photographer he has studied at the International Center of Photography and the School of Visual Arts, both located in New York. Early on his work was exhibited at the Salmagundi Club where he received the Mufalli Estate Award and still another award in 2006. His photography has been exhibited there several times. It has also been exhibited in galleries in Washington and California.

All sculpture and phototgraphy is available in limited editions.
