Marine Art genre

The ASMA adopts a broad approach to Marine Art in terms of expressive style and marine subject matter from the broad expanses of oceans, seas and coastlines to harbours and inland waterways and the depiction of the wide-ranging activities of those whose lives are inextricably linked to a marine environment.

The Society seeks to encourage the practice and the appreciation of Marine Art in Australia in recognition of its importance in the artistic life of our great Maritime Nation.

Open exhibition

As this exhibition will also be open to non members of the ASMA, it will hopefully attract many artists within South Australia and Australia-wide. The ASMA Committee hopes that this opportunity will attract to the Exhibition more artists within the Marine Art genre and also encourage new members to join the society, a significantly representative body.

The Exhibition’s theme is intended to encourage artists to research and create works that will be an example of South Australia’s rich maritime history, as well as representing its present day shipping activities and marine life.
