An exhibition of unique works created by the nation’s leading maritime artists, “The Plein Air Painters of the Maritime Gallery Exhibition and Sale” is a collection of the work of 26 of today’s leading maritime artists, who took to their French easels on the Museum grounds and nearby locations from Tuesday, June 12 to Saturday, June 16, 2018, to capture the timeless beauty of the Museum’s historic ships, shoreline vistas, and scenes along the Mystic River in the tradition of the plein air painters of the 19th and 20th centuries.

The artists’ works will then be available for viewing and purchase in the “Plein Air Painters of the Maritime Gallery Exhibition and Sale” from June 16 through September 23.

There will be a public opening reception at The Maritime Gallery on Saturday, June 16 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Meet the artists and purchase works fresh from the easel. Refreshments will be served
