About this Curation

Since 2002 the Mission to Seafarers Victoria Maritime Art Prize has exhibited the work of over 700 artists and is Australia’s leading maritime art award. The Maritime Art Awards & Exhibition, proudly supported by ANL, promotes excellence in maritime and seafaring subjects in art and assists in raising the profile of the 1.5 million merchant seafarers responsible for transporting more than 90 per cent of world trade. We at bluethumb are proud to be partners this year and would like to give a sneak peak of the artworks selected to exhibit this year. To see the full selection please click here.
