Many museums and galleries are reopening with safety measures in place. Please remember to check each venue's guidelines before visiting.



The annual exhibition by the Royal Society of Marine Artists features pieces by elected members and non-members, celebrating all aspects of the sea with themed works in a broad range of styles and media.

The common theme is the sea and tidal waters, although within that remit, work is wide and varied. Subjects range from deep water shipping to coastal scenes, competitive sailing to quiet harbours, marine wildlife to still-life. Some specialise in carefully researched historical paintings, while others paint 'en plein air', embracing the significant challenge of capturing the visceral essence of the scene at a given moment in time. Meanwhile, others work in their studio from copious notes and sketches made on location.

The Royal Society of Marine Artists (RSMA) is widely recognised as the focal point for much of Britain's finest contemporary marine art and many of the country's leading marine artists are elected members of the Society.

The exhibition will also be available to view online from 1 September.

Prizewinners will be announced online on Wednesday 30 September, 5pm.
