Bernard Dick - Artist

Most of my images are from our travels. Not surprisingly, people often buy my work because they, too, have travelled to that country or location. This is true of "Ryan's School, Ireland". The buyer had recently travelled to Ireland and the Dingle Peninsula and had viewed the film "Ryan's Daughter" which had been filmed on the Dingle Peninsula. The ruins of the building used in that film is the subject of my painting.

Solo show at the VB Brewery in Victor, New York, 160 School Street. Lots of wall space that took 25 of my works. Reception was March 26, 2017.




17" x 24" giclee print on watercolor paper

My good friend and former student, Trish Linfoot Stallins just sent me pictures of the show we are both in out in Denver Colorado at the Globeville Riverfront Gallery. I wish I could have been there. Trisha was nice to let me know about the show so I could enter. The "theme" was work inspired by photographs. The assemblage "Home" is Trish's work.

Glendalough (/ˌɡlɛndəˈlɒx/; Irish: Gleann Dá Loch, meaning "Valley of two lakes") is a glacial valley in County Wicklow, Ireland, renowned for an Early Medieval monastic settlement founded in the 6th century by St Kevin.


Visited Glendalough several years ago on a trip to Ireland to study early Christian art and architecture as well as the usual tourist things. This is a composite image of the visit in which I tried to capture the atmosphere of the valley.


Sold: "Night Wall Walk"


This work was inspired by an early evening walk around the medieval wall of the city Krakow, Poland.


Twenty-three of my works are now on display at the "Tap and Mallet" Irish pub in Rochester, until the end of Frebruary. 381 Gregory St, Rochester, NY.
