Mystic, CT - An exhibition of unique works created by the nation’s leading maritime artists, “The Plein Air Painters of the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport,” is now open at the gallery.

Currently on view are 112 exceptional paintings that capture the timeless beauty of the Museum’s historic ships, shoreline vistas, and village scenes along the Mystic River in the tradition of the plein air painters of the 19th and 20th centuries. These paintings are fresh off the easels as they were painted on the grounds of the Museum the week of June 17. Among the 35 featured painters are David Bareford, Leonard Mizerek, Cindy Baron, David Monteiro, and Russ Kramer.

“This annual exhibition and sale now in its 18th year showcases work 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 Jeanne Potter, director of the Maritime Gallery. “And these paintings are remarkably affordable considering the quality of the work and the renown these artists have among collectors of maritime art.”

The exhibition is open to the public and continues through September 21.

The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 860.572.5388 or visit the gallery’s website where one can view the exhibition online.
