Nationally known Chesapeake Baybased maritime artist John Barber set a new record with the sale of his 1993 collection held at the Luper Auction Galleries in Richmond, Virginia, last October. Barber created a body of 63 new pieces for the sale which was attended by 250 eager buyers. The offering concluded with a total of over $250,000 in sales. Acclaimed American artist John Stobart recently completed a D-Day 50th Anniversary commemorative titled "The Liberty Ship John W. Brown," available in June in a limited edition. A photo preview of this print provided to Sea History reveals the Brown in convoy proceeding down the East Coast escorted by a World War I class destroyer (known as a "Four Piper") laying down a smoke screen for protection from U-boats. American Society of Marine Artists's (ASMA) shows are a first-class opportunity to view up-and-coming talent. The Society has organized a Northwest regional show featuring member's work at theColumbiaRiverMaritime Museumin Astoria, Oregon, to run from June until late September.
