Coastal Moments – Plein Air Art Exhibit

July 11 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Coastal Moments Art Exhibit at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum

Santa Barbara Maritime Museum is pleased to announce the opening of its latest exhibition Coastal Moments, a presentation of 10 local plein air artists and their works incorporate coastal landscapes and ocean themes. The exhibit kindles a sense of calm, serenity, and meditation while celebrating the awe-inspiring beauty of the world’s coastline.

Featured artists include Ann Shelton Beth, Nancy Davidson, Camile Dellar, Rick Garcia, Derek Harrison, Wyllis Heaton, Ray Hunter, Ann Sanders, Thomas Van Stein, and Ralph Waterhouse.

Plein air painters capture a moment or impression of the landscape, immersing themselves in their surroundings to paint what they see before them. First popularized by the Impressionists, this technique allows the artist to utilize changing light effects, shadows, and brilliant color palettes to achieve the ever-changing wild and natural world.
