Artist Talk: Dirk Bach


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.
