31st Annual Exhibition of the Canadian Society of Marine Artists
Opened Saturday, 3 May 2014
The Naval Marine Archive The Canadian Collection and the Canadian Society of Marine Artists are proud to present the 31st Annual Exhibition of the Canadian Society of Marine Artists which opened Saturday the 3rd of May 2014. The paintings by the artists for this new exhibition will be on display until the end of July at The Victory gallery, 205 Main Street, Picton, Ontario.
We are commemorating the 100th anniversary this year of the First World War. The Royal Canadian Navy played an important part in this history, adding ships to the service and serving on board British ships. Midshipman Malcolm Cann, Midshipman John V.W. Hatheway, Midshipman William Archibald Palmer, and Midshipman Arthur Wiltshire Silver were the first RCN casualties, when HMS Good Hope was sunk on 1st November 1914.
We are fortunate to have many talented artists from across Canada who enjoy portraying all aspects of marine art. This year three of the artists have chosen Canada's first submarines, CC-1 and CC-2, as a subject to commemorate the events of one hundred years ago.
