Join the Royal Society of Marine Artists for their 70th Annual Exhibition celebrating the sea and the marine environment in all its variety - from the deep sea to quiet harbours, from super-tankers to sailing dinghies, from all that is beside the sea to what lies under it. On show will be over 300 works by some of the most celebrated marine artists at work today. Relive those treasured memories of a picnic on the beach or a walk on a cliff-top path, of dinghy sailing or sailing the high seas as you cruised to warmer climes.

During the exhibition members will be tutoring practical painting workshops in the Learning Centre (bookable in advance) and giving free demonstrations in the gallery. For details, please visit: www.rsma-web.co.uk

Mall Galleries art consultants will also be available over the course of the exhibition to discuss commissioning works of marine art for your home or workplace. Learn more about commissioning here or to book a private consultation please contact our Commissions Consultant, Anna Bromwich, at commissions@mallgalleries.com

Want to receive an invitation to the Private View, unlimited free entry to the exhibition for you and a guest with a complimentary catalogue, plus more? Find out about becoming a Friend of Mall Galleries
