Canadian Society of Marine Artists Nautical Artist
[ Back to News ]


20 June 2008

It is with great pleasure that the Canadian Society of Marine Artists announces that Mr Stefan Starenkyj of Richmond, Québec, has been invited by the Members to join the Canadian Society of Marine Artists.

At a time when one only thinks of playing ball, Mr. Stefan Starenkyj preferred his pencils and paper. His drawing abilities led him to study architecture and after graduating from McGill University, he practiced his profession in the Québec city area, in the French West Indies and in the Eastern Townships. During all that time he did not set aside his love for painting and drawing and as result, 51 of his pen and ink drawings were published under the title Bellechase en blanc et noir. This unique collection has been acclaimed and appreciated by the general public. Through the years his realistic style has developed into an expression of great intensity. A simple anchor, flecked with rust, a calm harbour, boats at rest . . . , become a message of perseverance and lasting serenity.

The Canadian Society of Marine Artists is dedicated to those Canadian artists who have been and always will be inspired by our oceans and lakes, our ships and those who sail in them. The Society’s four thousand square feet of gallery space in the premises of the Archives and Collections Society at “The Victory”, 205 Main Street, Picton, ON, K0K 2T0
