Mystic, CT - The Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport opens the 33rd Annual International Marine Art Exhibition and Sale Sunday, September 23.

The International is the most comprehensive collection of contemporary marine art in the United States. More than 100 award-winning artists from around the globe will present their most recent work. Represented in this show are exceptional paintings, drawings, sculpture, scrimshaw, and ship models. The show is a commemoration of America’s maritime heritage with both intricately researched historical scenes and contemporary images that document the relationship of man to the sea.

“Every year we strive to find the best work in the marine field and bring it to our Gallery at Mystic Seaport,” said Jeanne Potter, Director of the Maritime Gallery. “The show is a wonderful opportunity to view–and purchase–the latest and finest efforts from the most accomplished marine artists working today.”

Participating artists include Donald Demers, William Duffy, Ian Hansen, Russ Kramer, Sergio Roffo, and Jeff Weaver.

Five awards of excellence and nine prestigious named awards–including the Rudolph J. Schaefer Maritime Heritage Award, which recognizes the work that best documents our maritime heritage for future generations–will be awarded at a black-tie awards dinner and preview September 22 (dinner by invitation only).

The judges selecting these awards this year are Jeffrey W. Cooley, Director of the Cooley Gallery in Old Lyme, Connecticut and Jay Picotte, Curator of the Museum of Yachting in Newport, Rhode Island.

All works in the exhibition are available to view and purchase daily between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. The show can also be viewed on the Gallery website, www.mysticseaport.org/gallery.

The exhibition runs through December 31, 2012.
