Three Takes on Realism: Del Bourree Bach, Peter Bergeron, Jeanne Rosier Smith

Fall Marsh, Peter Bergeron

Three award-winning artists will present their vision and style of contemporary realism in an exhibition at the Susan Powell Fine Art Gallery, 679 Boston Post Road, Madison from Monday, Sept. 9 to Saturday, Sept. 28. There will be an opening reception, free and open to the public, Friday, Sept. 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. There also will be an artist pastel demonstration with Jeanne Rosier Smith from 4 to 5 p.m. before the opening on Friday, Sept. 6.

Del Bourree Bach is known for sail and working boats, life around the sea, rural farms, and intimate scenes of nature. He has received well over 150 awards in national and international competitions. His work is included in museums and in numerous private and public collections.

Peter Bergeron is a classic landscape painter in the style of the Hudson River school. His paintings have an atmospheric depth, with his signature masterful use of light. His work has a mysterious, yet serene, peaceful feel to his powerful compositions of waterways, clouds, and quiet landscapes.

Smith is a nationally known pastel artist of seascapes and recently garnered a first place in landscape in the Pastel Journal’s 2019 National Competition. Her work conveys her deep love of the coast and the power and grace of the sea in all its moods, as well as the surrounding landscape.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 to 5 p.m., and anytime by appointment. More information is available by calling 203-318-0616, emailing, or visiting
