Donato, again!

For the second Friday in a row, longtime Fan District resident Gerald Donato has an art show opening here in the Fan. Last week it was “Gerald Donato: Reinventing the Game” at VCU’s Anderson Gallery. This week the show is called “Mr. Man and Moonface,” and it opens on Groundhog’s Day (Feb. 2) at the Reynolds Gallery, 1514 West Main Street; the reception is from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m..

Some would suggest this 2004 photo of Joan Gaustad and Jerry Donato, smiling through a rainy July afternoon in Shockoe Bottom, offers the viewer a good clue as to the identities of/inspiration for the two characters in the name of the Reynolds art show.
