Artist Talk: Dirk Bach


Please note: The Sigal Museum, Jane S. Moyer Library, and all NCHGS historic houses will be temporarily closed to the public. All public programming and gatherings, including the Annual Meeting dinner, will be cancelled and rescheduled.


Join artist Dirk Bach for Fourth Friday to discuss his Canine Illumination exhibition in the museum’s Regional Artists Gallery. He’ll share his process, inspirations, and thoughts on life as a modern-day working artist.

This collection of acrylic paintings and colored pencil drawings focuses on figurative realism with the depiction of Mavis – a black and white Terrier mix from New York – in a variety of situations: as Radha seduced by Krishna (as a blue motorcycle), as a canine illuminated by Shiva, posing on rugs, with figures from Japanese prints, African sculptures, and more.

All work in this exhibition was created in Bach’s Easton studio.

Please note: the 5/16/2020 program runs from 2 - 4 p.m.
