The Australian Society of Marine Artists Inc (ASMA) is pleased to announce its 2020 National Exhibition, ‘Seas of Change’, that will be staged at the Royal Art Society’s Lavender Bay Gallery, North Sydney from Friday 9 October 2020 to Sunday 25 October 2020.  RAS President John Perkins will open the event on 9 October at 6pm.

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
