7th Annual Maritime Art Exhibit at Coos Art Museum

July 7 through September 9, 2000


A juried exhibition of maritime art created by members of the prestigious American Society of Marine Artists (ASMA) featuring the work of this year's guest artist, June Carey from Chico, CA. A self-taught artist, June Carey has been painting in oils for more than 20 years. June has developed a unique style, incorporating both intense color and dramatic light effects, setting her work apart from other seascape artists. Her work displays a vital representation of the scenes she loves, bringing the viewer into the painting. Her depictions of the Pacific coast have been included in notable exhibitions and private collections throughout the United States. Ms. Carey, a Fellow in A.S.M.A. and artist member of the California Art Club (C.A.C.) and Oil Painters of America (O.PA.), was the Region II winner in the prestigious national Arts For The Parks competition in both 1997 and 1998.
