Accomplished painters join lecture series

Classical painter Peter Layne Arguimbau, an artist well known for his mastery of the Flemish Technique, will be the first presenter at "Behind the Canvas," a four-part series held from 4-5:30 p.m. Jan. 29 at the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport.

The series will continue on Saturdays Feb. 26, March 19 and April 16.

Renowned artists will share their personal stories through lectures, slide presentations and live demonstrations. Attendees will be given a behind-the-canvas look at what inspires creativity and will additionally learn what qualities art collectors look for in a painting.

Tickets are $75 for the series ($55 for members) and $20 per program ($15 for members). Tickets are available online at or by calling (860) 572-5322.
