Don Townsend - Toledo Artist
"Although Donald Townsend's works are classed as paintings, they are primarily drawings in the tedious resistant technique of scratchboard. The huge size and subtle handling of themes of social comment contribute to their importance."
Louise Bruner, Toledo Blade Art Editor, Toledo, Ohio
"He favors overlays of imagery and subjects that pack an immediate emotional punch. At his best, Townsend finds the overtones of lyricism in humdrum settings - as did Edward Hopper."
James E. Harvey, Journal Art Critic, Flint, Michigan
