Donald Calledare      Donald Calledare is an Italian-born painter and writer who has lived and worked in Houston for many years, creating a substantial body of large scale paintings that explore landscapes of the imagination, the mythic and the fantastic. He is a contributing editor of the Texas art magazine "Artlies" and has written frequently on contemporary art and culture. Donald's manuscript, composed under the name of the fictional writer Generico Vespucci, became the libretto for AlienNation's MIGBOT exhibition and the development of a new opera, MIRAK. Donald now resides in North Carolina.
