The call of the sea is strong and many of us feel an urge to spend some time within sight or sound of the water. Fond memories are often centred around family trips to the beach, walking the coastline or sailing the seas.

Join us to celebrate everything that is wonderful and inspiring about the sea and marine environment. Some 400 works, by many of the most celebrated marine artists at work today, will evoke the spirit of the sea - from the ships, yachts and dinghies that sail on it to the people who take their leisure by it; from the exhilaration of the deep sea to the calm of quiet harbours and estuaries.

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 unlimited free entry to the exhibition for you and a guest and a complimentary catalogue, plus more?
