New and exciting art will be shown with an underlying theme of canoes, as well as general marine art subjects. Artwork in various mediums including scrimshaw will be on display by our well known artists: John M. Horton, Hamish Berchem, Peter Rindlisbacher, Wesley Lowe, Stefan Starenkyj, Don Macmillan and guest artists: Jean Leroux and George Wilkinson.

This Special Opening allows you to to be amongst the first to see and acquire these new works before the Exhibition is open to the general public.

You are encouraged to dress according to the theme of canoeing. Prizes will be given for the best 'costume' from any period of canoeing history. (Special dress is not a requirement for admission.)

A fund raising auction will be held to support the charity, Naval Marine Archive: The Canadian Collection, so that the goals of our organization continue to be met.


Tickets are on sale at $25 per person or $40 per couple which include beverages, wine and hors-d'oeuvres. There are a limited number of tickets, on sale now, for the opening – some may still be available at the door on opening day. Please plan early and join the fun.

The exhibition continues until the end of July and there will be no entry fee to the general public.
