William Storck – Classic Works, opens at Troika Gallery on October 1 and will run through November 12. There will be an artist’s reception at the gallery on October 1 from 5 to 8 p.m. New marine and landscape oil paintings fresh from the easel of Bill Storck will feature in this majestic exhibit.
William has been painting full time for over 40 years. He first studied with the master painter Naoto Nakagawa in Vermont and then at the Maryland Institute College of Art. William’s first solo show in Annapolis at the age of 25 completely sold out. William is a member of the American Society of Marine Artists. His paintings hang in private collections in the United States and Europe as well as the U.S. Embassy.
His romantic views of the Chesapeake reflect a lifetime spent studying the lands and waters of the Bay. Renowned for his marine paintings, drawn from his love of sailing and personal observations of traditional Chesapeake-built schooners and skipjacks still sailing and working on the Bay, William strives to integrate the water, the wind, the sky, and sailing vessels into a carefully balanced, light infused, timeless image. J.M.W. Turner, James Hamilton, and Fitz Hugh Lane are important influences in William’s work.
