American Society of Marine Artists Celebrates 30th Anniversary
The American Society of Marine Artists (ASMA) is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a traveling exhibition of work by more than 100 contemporary marine artists. One of the largest and most ambitious exhibitions of its kind, the show opened at the Chase Center on the Riverfront, in Wilmington, Delaware, on May 16 and is running through July 6 before continuing its tour of other East Coast venues, which concludes in September 2009. Following its stay in Delaware, the show will be on display at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, in St. Michael's, Maryland; The Noyes Museum of Art, in Oceanville, New Jersey; the Spartanburg Art Museum, in Spartanburg, South Carolina; and the New Bedford Art Museum, in New Bedford, Massachusetts. An illustrated catalogue will be available for purchase at each venue, as well as through the society's website.
The ASMA is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to recognize and promote maritime art and history and to encourage cooperation among artists, historians, and mariner enthusiasts. Founded in 1978, it has brought together some of America's most talented contemporary artists in the marine field, and currently has more than 600 members.
