The Plein Air Painters of the Maritime Gallery
For the 18th year in a row, Maritime Gallery artists congregated 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, the artists painted at their French easels outside at Mystic Seaport from June 17-21, capturing the beauty of the grounds and the shifting light along the Mystic River.
The completed works are now featured in the Maritime Gallery’s exhibition and sale “The Plein Air Painters of the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport.” The exhibition is open at the Gallery through September 21, 2014.
