Plein Air Painters Exhibition & Sale

June 24 - September 17

For the 21st year, Maritime Gallery artists gather at The Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport to paint the Museum grounds and environs. Following the tradition of the plein air painters of the 19th and 20th centuries, artists stand at their French easels on the grounds of the Mystic Seaport, capturing the shifting light along the Mystic River and also nearby at coastal marshes and beaches. The artists will paint from Tuesday, June 20 through Saturday, June 24.

There will be a public opening reception at the Maritime Gallery on Saturday, June 24 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Meet the artists and purchase works fresh from the easel. Refreshments will be served.
