The Royal Society of Marine Artists Annual Exhibition features works by elected members and non-members, celebrating all aspects of the sea 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 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.
