Featuring the artwork of Bill Buck, Linda Gunderson, and David Trout
(The show will remain in the Special Exhibit Gallery through August 25th)
Bill Buck has divided his career between the worlds of theatrical design and studio art. In the art studio he works primarily in oil and acrylic. He paints scenes of nature, sometimes distant and pastoral, and sometimes simple, immediate and sculptural. He is an experienced scenic and lighting designer, a scenic painter, mask maker and puppeteer. Much of his career has been spent working in theatre for young audiences. This diverse career in the performing arts often informs the choices he makes in the studio. Bill recently retired from James Madison University in Virginia and has also taught at the University of South Carolina and Mount Holyoke College. A graduate of Rowan University and the Yale School of Drama, he recently relocated to Newark, Delaware.
‘A Moment in Time’ is the theme of Linda Gunderson’s work. Each painting is an expression of a moment experienced while traveling, gardening, driving daily commutes and outdoor adventures. Paintings include images from Italy, the Midwest, Arizona and the Maryland/Delaware area. Linda Gunderson exhibits in Southern Minnesota, Delaware, Maryland and Seravezza, Italy. A native of Minnesota, she now lives and works in Maryland and Delaware.
David Trout has been involved in fine arts since he was eight years old. Formally trained at both the Studio School of Art and Design and the Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia, he continued with workshops at the Philadelphia College of Art (PCA). David went on to freelance with graphic illustration for five years. In 1991, he decided to switch from illustration to pursue fine arts. Mainly an oil landscape and still life painter, David has also done work with many different subjects and mediums. His work has been in numerous exhibits in PA, NJ, DE, and MD.
