The Australian Society of Marine Artists Inc (ASMA) is pleased to announce its online 2021 Silver Anniversary National Exhibition from Friday 1 October 2021 to Tuesday 30 November 2021. Ian Hansen, internationally renowned marine artist will open the event.

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. Just like all other ASMA exhibitions, this one beautifully displays the variation of artistic styles offered by its member artists.

“This year is ASMA’s 25th year anniversary and we are celebrating with an exhibition featuring some of our fabulous member artists. With COVID restrictions limiting physical exhibitions we decided to have an online exhibition. Every visitor can walk around the exhibition and see each work and perhaps, even buy one!” President of the ASMA, Karen Bloomfield said. “The ASMA artistic expression celebrates the finest examples of marine art in Australia and New Zealand, and rivals the best that is found overseas.”

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.
