Presenting this year's Annual Exhibition by the Royal Society of Marine Artists, featuring nearly 400 pieces by elected members and non-members, celebrating all aspects of the sea with themed works in a broad range of styles and media.

The common theme is the sea and tidal waters although, within that remit, work is wide and varied. Subjects range from deep water shipping to coastal scenes, competitive sailing to quiet harbours, marine wildlife to still-life. Some specialise in carefully researched historical paintings; others paint en plein air, attempting to capture the essence of the scene at a particular moment in time; yet others work in their studio from copious 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.

During the exhibition, visitors can meet the artists at work in the gallery.
