Tales of the Sea brings together an exhilarating collection of original paintings from some of Britain’s leading marine artists. From soft, sandy shores to the magnificent wilderness of the open ocean, this new exhibition celebrates the simultaneous familiarity and adventure of the sea. With a dazzling array of seafaring scenes, both traditional and contemporary, there are myriad tales in which to become immersed.
There is nothing so stirring a subject as the sea. For thousands of years it has been a source of both comfort and of trepidation. It is a place where legends are born and ships are wrecked, yet equally a place of quiet power--a sanctuary where the soul can be revived. Through the eyes of artists including Alex Hill, Andrew Stranack-Walton, Juriy Ohremovich and Amanda Jackson, the exhibition explores individual elements of these stories in a superior collection of fine art.
