Mystic, Conn. (November 21, 2014)—The Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport presents its annual winter exhibition Marine Artists in Winter, November 23, 2014 through April 19, 2015.

The invitational exhibition features 125 small paintings displayed and available for purchase – each no larger than 12 inches in height or width (excluding frame). The exhibition includes works with a maritime winter theme among others by 51 top Maritime Gallery artists, and features scenes of majestic ships, yachting and working boats, coastal landscapes, marshes, and marine wildlife.

Participating artists include David Bareford, Cindy Baron, William Hanson, Neal Hughes, Victor Mays, and Cean Youngs.
One of the most popular shows on the gallery’s annual schedule, the exhibition provides an opportunity for collectors to own original work by their favorite artists at affordable prices.

“Each painting is truly a small masterpiece created by some of the most respected maritime artists working today,” said Jeanne Potter, director of the Maritime Gallery.  “Reasonably priced and beautifully framed, these paintings are perfect for holiday gift giving.”

The Gallery will host a public opening with an “Artist’s Walk” on Sunday, November 23 at 1:30 p.m. where some of the participating artists will be on hand to discuss their works in the show. Admission to the Artist’s Walk and the Gallery is free.
