"Every year we strive to find the best work in the marine field and bring it to our Gallery at Mystic Seaport," Maritime Gallery director Jeanne Potter said. "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.


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.
