The Plein Air Painters of the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport

For the 18th year in a row, Maritime Gallery artists will congregate at Mystic Seaport to paint the Museum grounds and environs. Following the tradition of the plein air painters of the 19th and early 20th centuries, artists can be found at their French easels outside at Mystic Seaport capturing the beauty of the grounds and the shifting light along the Mystic River. Come watch your favorite artists paint en plein air Tuesday, June 17, through Saturday, June 21.

The completed works will then be featured in the Maritime Gallery’s exhibition and sale “The Plein Air Painters of the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport” from June 22 through September 21.
