The Exhibition showcases the best examples of the ASMA Members’ artworks that masterfully illustrate the rich maritime heritage, beautiful coastlines and waterways of our nation. Whilst emphasising the continuation of and dedication to the Marine Art tradition, the Exhibition also highlights the relevance of this specialised artistic genre in the contemporary context and during these changing times. Just like all other ASMA exhibitions, this one beautifully displays the variation of artistic styles offered by its member artists.

There has always been a high standard and originality shown from all participants in past exhibitions, but I think this one exceeded our expectations

The ASMA artistic expression celebrates the finest examples of marine art in Australia and New Zealand, and rivals the best that is found overseas.

Karen Bloomfield, President of the ASMA

The ASMA seeks to encourage the practice and the appreciation of Marine Art in Australia in recognition of the importance of this art genre that reflects Australia’s standing as a great Maritime Nation and to preserve our nation’s rich marine and maritime heritage.
