Contemporary realist Del-Bourree Bach is known for his striking and almost tactile depictions of nature and man's relationship to it. Although many of his paintings are inspired by the sea and the life in and around it, he enjoys new challenges and subjects as well, from rural farms to city sidewalks. Bach’s paintings often invite viewers to enter into the scene, feel the atmosphere, and create their own stories. Primarily a studio painter, he creates most of his work in acrylic on panel.
Bach’s work is included in private, public, and museum collections throughout the United States, including the Florence Griswold Museum (Old Lyme, CT) and The Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art (St. Joseph, MO), as well as the U.S. Embassy and Coast Guard art collections. He has received more than 150 awards for his paintings in national and international competitions. A long-standing Salmagundi Club member, Bach is a Signature Member of numerous other organizations including Artists for Conservation, American Society of Marine Artists, National Oil & Acrylic Painters’ Society (Master) and Copley Society (Copley Artist). His work has been featured in many publications over the years.
Bach is represented by Argosy Gallery (Bar Harbor, ME), Hughes Gallery (Boca Grande, FL), Left Bank Gallery (Orleans and Wellfleet, MA), The Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport (Mystic, CT), Susan Powell Fine Art (Madison, CT), The Scott Bundy Art Gallery (Kennebunkport, ME), and Sheldon Fine Art (Newport, RI), among others. His home and studio are in Mystic, Connecticut.
