Press release

This exhibition looks at the marine environment through the eyes of three New England artists. New York Times Bestselling author/artist James Prosek will exhibit paintings of real and imagined marine creatures. His images are finely rendered in watercolor, color pencil and graphite, and he is well known for his natural science art as well as childrens' book illustration.

A lifetime of diving with father and pioneer underwater filmmaker Stan Waterman inspires Susannah Waterman's painted fish on wood panels and beach combed crustacean assemblages, as well as New Haven sculptor Gar Waterman's luscious forms of shells, nudibranchs, and squid carved in marble and onyx.

A percentage of the artwork sold from this show will be donated to the Penobscot East Resource Center, a nationally recognized marine and fisheries conservation group that works to balance sustainable fishing with the environment.
