Join us to celebrate everything that is wonderful and inspiring about the sea and the marine environment.

To celebrate the Society's 50th anniversary of gaining their Royal Charter, this will be their largest-ever Annual Exhibition with some 400 works by many of the most celebrated marine artists at work today. In a wide range of styles, sizes and media, these works will depict the sea and coast, along with the ships, yachts and dinghies that sail the seas, and the people who work or take their leisure on or by it. In short, something to appeal to everyone.

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

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.
