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. His paintings invite viewers to enter into the scene, feel the atmosphere, and create their own stories. Primarily a studio painter, Bach creates most of his work in acrylic on panel. The artist’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 work in national and international competitions. A long-standing Salmagundi Club member, Bach is a signature member of numerous other organizations including Artists for Conservation and the American Society of Marine Artists. His work has been featured in many publications over the years.
Bach is represented by Hughes Gallery (Boca Grande, FL), The Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport (Mystic, CT), Courtyard Art Gallery (Mystic CT), Left Bank Gallery (Orleans and Wellfleet, MA), Susan Powell Fine Art (Madison, CT), The Scott Bundy Art Gallery (Kennebunkport, ME), and Argosy Gallery (Bar Harbor, ME), among others. His home and studio are in Mystic, Connecticut.
