Plein Air Painters of the Maritime Gallery

June 20 - September 20

For the 23rd year in a row, the Maritime Gallery artists will congregate at The Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport Museum 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 on the grounds of the Museum capturing the shifting light along the Mystic River and also nearby at coastal marshes and beaches.

Come and watch your favorite artists paint en plein air beginning Tuesday, June 16, and continuing through Saturday, June 20. The show runs through September 20.

There will be a public opening reception at The Maritime Gallery on Saturday, June 20 from 5 to 7 p.m. Meet the artists and purchase works fresh from the easel.
