2019 Offshore Art Gallery

Artists submit their finest for 2019

Art has always told a story. Early humans used it to keep historical and evidential records; without visual art, we would have no knowledge of the ancient world. As the written word became the standard for record keeping, art continued to evolve as decoration, but also as a way of telling a visual story. For lovers of all things big-game, no matter what the medium, art continues to evoke our passion for the sea and the sport. Welcome to this year’s gallery.
