On The Waterfront Charleston In 1890 By Patrick O’Brien

2020 National Maritime Awards Dinner Art Exhibition

Works by acclaimed American Association of Marine Artists (ASMA) will be on display and for sale at the 2020 National Maritime Awards Dinner in Washington, DC, on 23 April 2020. The late Peter Stanford, NMHS president emeritus, helped found ASMA back in 1978 to “recognize, encourage, and promote marine art and maritime history.”  ASMA artists are an amazingly talented and knowledgeable resource, not just to those who appreciate and collect art, but to those who value the study of maritime history. These artists bring to life seafaring scenes from every age and successfully capture the spirit and character of sailing and ships, large and small, power and sail, merchant, military, or leisure.

Through the leadership of acclaimed artist Patrick O’Brien, we have invited a select group of ASMA artists including Laura Cooper, Neal Hughes, Loretta Krupinski, Richard Loud, Leonard Mizerek, Sergio Roffo, and Lisa Egeli, ASMA president, to display their work. This is an exhibition of mostly small paintings by contemporary masters of maritime art, organized to offer our members and guests a chance to meet some of the artists and see their paintings, and perhaps purchase a favorite and take it home.

25% of the purchase price of each painting goes to the National Maritime Historical Society and the National Coast Guard Museum Association and is tax deductible for the buyer.  You don’t have to be present to purchase a painting: all selections are available for purchase now by email at or by calling NMHS headquarters at (914) 737-7878, ext. 0. Paintings sold in advance will be displayed as “Sold” at the event. Check back as the event date approaches for additional works that will be posted as they become available.
