Mystic, CT - The Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport presents the 32nd International Marine Art Exhibition and Sale September 25 through November 13.

The International 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 in this show are exceptional 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 of note include David Bareford, Robert Dance, Don Demers, Russ Kramer and Victor Mays. In addition, the Gallery welcomes eight new artists juried into the show this year.

Five awards of excellence and eight prestigious named awards – including the Rudolph J. Schaefer Maritime Heritage Award, which recognizes the work that best documents our maritime heritage, past or present – will be given at a black-tie awards dinner and preview September 24 (dinner by invite only).

To kick off the opening to Museum members and the general public, the Gallery will hold an “Artists Walk” at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, September 25. Approximately twenty participating artists will be present to share how they created their works and answer questions.

The exhibition runs through November 13, 2011.

Admission to the Maritime Gallery is free. A portion from all gallery purchases helps to support maritime preservation work at the Museum.
