William Dec selected

William Dec was selected as the artist to create paintings of the eight homes on the 64th Annual Cottage Tour, shown above. Known for his landscapes and seascapes, William Dec has exhibited extensively and has received exceptional recognition and acclaim. His paintings become part of many private collections. The appeal of his paintings is related to the authenticity and honesty he captures so well. Bill paints the American scene in the mood of each season. In addition to his artist profession, Bill held positions in New York advertising firms for more than twenty five years. He also was the former owner of William’s Gallery in Chesapeake City, MD. He attended Oberlin College and the University of Michigan and studied at the Art Students League of New York and Pratt Institute. Bill teaches art, and has been an art instructor at New York University, Parsons School of Design and Adelphi University. He currently holds drawing and watercolor classes in Camden, DE and will also be teaching “Fun with Watercolor” at the Rehoboth Art League in May.
