The Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport will open its season on Sunday with the 34th annual Modern Marine Masters Spring Exhibition and Sale.
The exhibition celebrates the timeless beauty of the sea and ships with contemporary art created by award-winning artists from around the globe. On display will be original paintings, drawings, sculpture, scrimshaw and models from more than 50 of today’s leading maritime artists.
Each of these contemporary artists continues the tradition of preserving and celebrating the art of the sea by transferring his or her experience into a vivid and visual expression, one that may evoke a mood, record an important moment in maritime history, or capture the timeless challenge of the sea.
More than 75 works of art will be exhibited and available for purchase. Featured artists include Neal Hughes, Sergio Roffo, Russ Kramer, Cindy Baron, Len Mizerek, Don Demers, Patrick O’Brien and Loretta Krupinski.
“This invitational show represents some of the most exciting maritime art being created today and is a must-see for lovers of art that portrays the maritime experience,” Maritime Gallery director Jeanne Potter said.
Modern Marine Masters will be open through June 9. The entire exhibition can be viewed online at www.mysticseaport.org/gallery.
The Maritime Gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. For information, call (860) 572-5388 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
