Having been introduced to landscapes and seascapes by his artist mother, and with influence from his wife with a background in graphic arts, Vic Delnore has developed his own interpretations of landscapes, abstracts, and artistic scenes in graphite, pen and ink, water media, and charcoal.
His initial art training was in composition and perspective in The Hague, The Netherlands, followed by instruction in story illustration, pen-and-ink graphics at RPI, figure drawing and calligraphy at MIT/Harvard and ODU, and under nationally known instructors in watercolor and related media. He has exhibited in galleries on Florida, Cape Cod, the Outer Banks, and Hampton Roads since the sixties. Vic holds membership in the Lee County (Florida) Alliance for the Arts, and several artists' associations in Virginia.
Vic is a regular contributor of art to benefit relief organizations, local hospitals, and other causes.
His aim is to create works that share his lifelong association with the sea, the sky, intellectual pursuit, and distant lands.
Holding a PhD in geophysics, Vic recently retired from a career in the natural sciences. He was on the faculty of Rutgers University and was employed by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, NASA Langley Research Center, the U S Coast & Geodetic Survey, NOAA, and the U S Naval Reserve (retiring in 2003 as a Captain), was a volunteer and exhibitor at the Riverview Gallery in Portsmouth. At present he is privileged to be a volunteer and exhibitor at the Arts for ACT (Abuse Counseling and Treatment) Gallery in Fort Myers.
Vic lives with his wife Candie in Fort Myers, Florida. They have five children and seven grandchildren. Vicís other interests include music, foreign languages, boating, and travel.
