Bill Dodge grew up, and continues to live, on Long Island where he has been inspired by its natural beauty.  He believes each of his paintings has a story to tell and a connection to make.  They are efforts to share an experience, an emotion, a memory of a place and time.  His philosophy, that technical excellence will liberate the imagination, and his training have given him the tools to express the ideas and scenes that have interested him throughout his years as a fine artist, illustrator and teacher.

In a career spanning more than thirty years, Bill has created artwork for all the major publishers in New York, as well as a wide variety of private commissions ranging from murals to portraits.  As an Associate Professor in the Visual Communications Department at Farmingdale State College, he is dedicated to passing on the time honored traditional methods of drawing and painting to a new generation.

Exhibits at the Rosalie Dimon Gallery are a joint effort by East End Arts and the Jamesport Manor Inn to introduce exceptional artists and their work to the East End communities. This program is made possible with public funding provided by Suffolk County.
