“C. W. Mundy is one of America’s leading expressionists, no question. His mastery of all elements of painting—composition, atmospherics, lighting and color across a wide range of subjects, from still life to portraiture to landscape and seascape— speak volumes about his virtuosity. Plus his desire to share his insights and elevate the work of others make C. W. a great example for all the Fellows of the American Society of Marine Artists.” —Russ Kramer Fellow and past ASMA president (left) C. W. Mundy painting the fishing fleet on location in Gloucester, 2001. It has been an honor to be a Fellow in the American Society of Marine Artists since 2015 and participate in the recent ASMA national exhibition, which traveled to five museums throughout 2020–2022: Jamestown Settlement Museum, GulfQuest Maritime Museum, BurroughsChapin Museum of Art, Minnesota Marine Art Museum, and wrapping up at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. In June I will head to Gloucester and Rockport again. It is very exciting for me that my paintings will be exhibited for the first time in Rockport, in a place where I first began my career as a marine painter, at the Folly Cove Fine Art Gallery, with an opening of An Expression in Art, a fourartist exhibition, on June 18. My artwork will be exhibited at that time with three other nationally recognized artists: Derek Penix (California), Patrick Lee (Pennsylvania), and Tad Retz (New York). Currently, I’m spending more time in the studio and painting from my photographs, my memories and experiences. It has been a pleasure and a dream and a blessing to be able to travel the world to capture these beautiful and historic harbors. Gloucester is not only high on my list, but an enormous historical achievement. For more on the artist, visit www.cwmundy. com. Details on the exhibition this summer at the Folly Cove Fine Art Gallery are available at The Veteran, 40 x 30 inches, oil on canvas (2015) SEA HISTORY 179, SUMMER 2022
