Douglas Worthy Turner began painting in oil at the early age of thirteen under the guidance of his father, the late Raymond E. Turner who was a student of the Columbia School of Fine Arts. Today, Turner works mostly in oil on canvas or panel to create his Cape coastal scenes, but he is also known for his watercolors and pastels. Turner moved to the Cape in 1982 and opened the Turner Art Gallery in West Chatham, MA to worldwide art lovers and Cape Cod visitors. Since then, Turner has received notoriety for his works; such as being selected by the American Consulate and, through the Salmagundi Art Club, participating in the “American Fortnight” exhibit held in Hong Kong, China. The exhibit represented 100 American artist members from the past and 100 contemporary members. Turner’s paintings have been exhibited and sold in galleries in New York City, New Jersey, Florida, and Maine. Back in 1973, artist Robert MacGillis of Groton, Connecticut, was Turner’s sponsor to membership in the Salmagundi Club.
