Maritte Art News In case you missed the inaugural National Marine Art Conference last fall, you won't want to miss your second chance at attending this wholly worthwhile gathering of marine artists, enthusiasts, gallery owners, art historians, printmakers, and collectors at this year's national event, organized the the American Sociery of Marine Artists (ASMA), to be held in Mystic, Connecticut, next October. Plan to arrive the day before, because the schedule is packed and the day starts bright and early on Thursday morning, 19 October. Presentations, tours, receptions, and a plein air paint out will take place on the grounds of the Haley Mansion of the Inn at Mystic (the host venue), just down the road at Mystic MV Prud ence Seaport Museum, and at the La Grua Center in nearby Stonington. Thursday will open with a presentation by renowned artist C. W Mundy on his insights regarding the technique of painting upside-down. We'll also get a demonstration by Don Demers on the conception and development of a marine painting, fo llowed by scultor Scott Penegar who will give a demonstration on stone carving. On Thursday afternoon, the first 95 to sign up can take a sunset cruise out of Mystic aboard one of the historic 1911 steam ferries-either MV Prudence or MV Patience-operated by Greenwich Harbor Cruises. Friday's line-up includes an ASMA Fellows' plein air session at Mystic Seaport with Christopher Blossom, William Davis, Don Demers, Lisa Egeli, Len Mizerek, C. W Mundy, Len Tantillo, Sergio Roffo, and others. Additional presentations on Friday and Saturday include: a curators' discussion on Mystic Seaport's special collections, Russell Jinishian's insights into the business aspect of of marine art as it pertains to galleries, and presentations by artists Loretta Krupinski and Russ Kramer. The conference keynote speaker is Alan Granby, co-owner of Hyland-Granby Antiques, who will share his insights on some of the most important private maritime collections of our time. Russ Kramer At the Saturday evening banquet, ASMA will recognize Russell Jinishian with its 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award. Sunday's full schedule will conclude with a special artists' reception at Mystic Seaport's Rudolph Schaeffer Gallery, the final venue for the ASMA 17th National Exhibition, which opened for the first time in Williamsburg at last year's conference. There's nothing quite as satisfying as viewing contemporary art in an exhibition, and having the artists who created it milling about, ready to answer questions and engage in conversation in an informal setting. Early registration for NMHS and ASMA members will be available at a special price again this year for a limited time, through June 30th. Details on the venues, program, artists, and registration information is available on the ASMA website at www.americansocieryofmar ineartists.com. ..t
