​​“Donald Munson is a poet singing the joy of nature, ​using color and line to produce

a poem in visual terms.  He has a personal style of great distinction .… to evolve from

sensitive line. … into work one finds a combination of love and understanding of both

nature and form.”  

     Eva Gatling,The Heckscher Museum. ​

 

 “…open the gates of imagination … (D.M.) has a sophisticated Élan …​"
      Vito Cioffero 
"(Don) … balances geometric and biomorphic elements to create exquisite formal tensions
in his paintings of flowing forms …” 
     Art Speak, Soho, N. Y. , Caude LeSuer ​
"His work assimilates, then trandsends, to illuminate abstracted essential truths with
a masterful visual language built on line and color. "
     Douglas P. Clement, Take Magazine
"(Don)" - Munson ... airy ... rich-toned structural elements, ...evoking
Richard Diebenkorn's Ocean Park series ..."
Susan Boulanger, Art New England
