The Plein Air Painters of the Maritime Gallery

For the 19th 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, the artists will be at their French easels capturing the beauty of Mystic Seaport and the shifting light along the Mystic River. Come and watch your favorite artist paint en plen air beginning Tuesday, July 21 and continuing through Saturday, July 25.

A public opening reception will be hosted at the Maritime Gallery on Saturday, July 25 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Meet the artists, enjoy refreshments, and purchase work fresh from their easels.
