Join us for the Opening of Harbour Art, an exhibition of paintings created onboard the SS Master this Summer.
The Vancouver Maritime Museum invites you to an Opening Reception of our newest exhibit, Harbour Art, in the TK Gallery. This will be a great opportunity to meet the artists and admire their beautiful artworks. We hope to see you there!
Harbour Art is an exhibition of artworks created on board of the SS Master during Summer 2015. Some of the artists created realistic images; others took their impressions to a more abstracted level. Most of the paintings in the exhibition were made 'alla prima': without any preliminary sketches or drawings. Many of the artists told me about the great experience of being out on the water, connected with other artists, painting away for the day - a wonderful free outdoor residency!
The artwork in this exhibition is a compilation of the work made this last summer. It is also a celebration of historic Vancouver and the beautiful historic steamship SS Master.
