The Royal Society of Marine Artists selects pieces celebrating all aspects of the sea with themed works in a broad range of styles and media.

The common theme running through the exhibition is the sea and tidal waters,but within that remit work is wide and varied in theme. Subjects range from deep water shipping, coastal scenes and competitive sailing to quiet harbours, marine wildlife and still-life.

Some artists specialise in carefully researched historical paintings, others paint 'en plein air', embracing the challenge of capturing the visceral essence of water, while 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.
