Annapolis Maritime Museum presents “Two Cruise,” an exhibit of maritime paintings and illustrations by Christine and David O’Neill. Their work has been inspired by cruising the East Coast and the Bahamas aboard their 45-foot catamaran sailboat. An artist’s reception will be held Thursday, July 7, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. All artwork is for sale and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Museum’s education programs. This show will not only be an exhibit of artwork, but also a teaching experience where the viewer will be able to learn about the subject of each piece and how it was interpreted.
“Christine’s paintings are joyful and full of color and movement,” explains the Museum’s volunteer art exhibit coordinator, Les Foster. “Color, composition and movement are foremost in her mind when creating a new painting. David has a background in graphics and design. It’s obvious from looking at his work that patterns, repetition and arrangement of space are the elements that make his work so strong. Both artists enjoy the play of sun and shadow, yet both render the same views and subjects so differently.”
