Turner, Bruce

Born in Worcester, MA, 1941, Bruce Backman Turner became interested in art early in life through the influence of his late father, who had studied at the Columbia School of Art in New York City. On frequent family visits to the coast, he became intrigued not only with the majesty of the sea, but with the shimmering effects of light upon its surface.  In 1972, Turner and his young family moved to Rockport, a small coastal community on Massachusetts’ North Shore, where he established a studio to paint and realize his lifelong passion.
