The Covid-19 pandemic greatly disrupted the progress of our 18th National Exhibition. Some museums were forced to forego the exhibition entirely, and some will be welcoming it much later than planned. But the show will go on!
From June to October, 2021, the 18th National will be at the fabulous Minnesota Marine Art Museum in Winona, Minnesota, and will then visit the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, where it will be on display from October, 2021 to February, 2022.
In case you are unable to visit in person, we are making a PDF of the 18th Exhibition Catalog available here. Please enjoy the works in this catalog!
