The 36th Annual International Marine Art Exhibition and Sale opens Sunday, 27 September, at the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport. Award-winning artists from eight countries will be displaying pieces of the highest quality works of contemporary marine art. Paintings on display will include coastal scenes and marine wildlife as well as historic vessels, racing yachts, and working boats.
Participating artists include Laura Cooper, Richard Loud, Jeff Weaver, Don Demers, Russ Kramer, John Tayson, Patrick O’Brien, William Duffy, Elizabeth Mumford, Robert Lagasse, and Leif Nilsson. The exhibition will honor participating artists with five awards of excellence and nine named awards—including the Rudolph J. Schaefer Maritime Heritage Award, which recognizes the work that best documents America’s maritime heritage for future generations.
The exhibition and sale will run through 31 December; the works can also be viewed on Mystic’s website.
