The Plein Air Painters of the Maritime Gallery
Exhibition and Sale
Through September 20 at Mystic Seaport Museum
Thirty artists gathered for five days in July on the grounds of historic Mystic Seaport and the nearby coastal marshes, beaches and towns. Following the tradition of the en plein air painters of the 19th and early 20th centuries, the artists could be found at their French easels creating the 114 paintings now on display. Featured artists this year include David Bareford, David Montiero, Neal Hughes, and Bill Hanson.
The exhibition and sale is open to the public at the Mystic Seaport Maritime Gallery and will continue through September 20. The online exhibition can be viewed on Mystic’s website.
“This annual exhibition and sale, now in its 19th year, showcases paintings by many of the top maritime artists working today and illustrates why Mystic Seaport is so beloved by artists as a place of inspiration,” said Monique Foster, Director of the Maritime Gallery. “These paintings are remarkably affordable considering the quality of the work and the renown these artists have among collectors of maritime art.”
The Gallery is open daily from 10 am. to 5 pm. Admission is free. For more information, call 860 572-5388 or visit the Gallery’s website.
