The Royal Society of Marine Artists Annual Exhibition 2022 presents works inspired by the sea and marine environment, including harbours and shorelines, traditional craft and contemporary shipping, creeks, beaches, wildlife.
Some artists specialise in carefully researched historical paintings; others paint en plein air, embracing the significant challenge and thrill of capturing the visceral essence of the scene at a given moment in time; yet others work in their studio from notes and sketches made on location.
The Royal Society of Marine Artists (RSMA) is widely recognised as the focal point for much of Britain's finest contemporary marine art and many of the country's leading marine artists are elected members of the Society.
What to Expect?
- Over 300 works for sale, including paintings & sculptures
- Workshops and demonstrations held by Society members to share their knowledge and techniques
- A team of dedicated professionals at your disposal to offer help and advice with your purchase if required

About the Royal Society of Marine Artists
In 2014 the Society celebrated its 75th anniversary. Founded in 1939 as The Society of Marine Artists, in 1966 Her Majesty the Queen granted it the title Royal Society of Marine Artists. Early members included Charles Pears, Montague Dawson, Claude Muncaster, Norman Wilkinson, Rowland Hilder and Edward Wesson, all eminent artists in their day and whose work is held in major national collections. Many of the current members are equally eminent in their field and their work will be valued and appreciated for generations to come.
