Mystic Seaport Holds 32nd International Marine Art Exhibition
October 1, 2011
Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Connecticut, is currently holding its annual International Marine Art Exhibition, which runs through November 13.
The exhibition is the most comprehensive collection of contemporary marine art in the nation. More than 100 award-winning artists from eight countries around the globe will present their most recent works. Represented are paintings, drawings, sculpture, scrimshaw, and ship models. The show is a commemoration of our maritime heritage with both intricately researched historical scenes and contemporary images that document the relationship of man to the sea.
“Every year we strive to find the best work in the marine field and bring it to our gallery at Mystic Seaport,” said Jeanne Potter, Director of the Maritime Gallery. “The show is a wonderful opportunity to view—and purchase—the latest and finest efforts from the most accomplished marine artists working today.”
Participating artists include David Bareford, Robert Dance, Don Demers, Russ Kramer and Victor Mays. In addition, the Gallery welcomes 8 new artists juried into the show this year.
Admission to the Maritime Gallery is free. A portion from all gallery purchases helps to support maritime preservation work at the Museum.
