Anthony Davis is a self taught artist who is known mostly for his award winning maritime scenes and seascapes in pastel. He is a Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists (ASMA) and Artist Member of the Salmagundi Club.
His seascape themed artwork is fast gaining national recognition in museum exhibits across the country, particularly in ASMA’s National and Regional exhibitions. He was chosen for The Heckscher Museum of Art’s first Biennial Exhibition in 2010, featuring Long Island artists and his work was recently featured on the cover of Pastel Journal in August 2010. As a Plein Air Painter, Anthony is a founding member of The Long Island Plein Air Painters Society and he is responsible for the creation of Northport’s first Plein Air Painting Event which has become a staple in the town’s summer events.
Anthony is represented in Mystic Seaport’s Maritime Gallery in their Annual International Marine Art Exhibitions, Modern Marine Masters Shows and their Plein Air Painters and Miniature Exhibitions; LaMantia Gallery, Christopher Gallery; Gallery North, Long Island, NY; and The Salmagundi Club in New York, NY.
Today, in addition to painting local scenery, Anthony continues with his first love, representing the ocean and maritime scenery in a realistic fashion through the use of pastel.
