In celebration of Summer and the opening of the Chesapeake Bay Log Canoe racing season, we will be hosting a mid-year exhibition of Marc Castelli’s work including five new log canoe watercolors and his workboats and watermen paintings.
The Honorable John C. North’s new book, Chesapeake Bay Log Sailing Canoes – a Study in Tradition, Speed, and Elegance, completed with contributions by Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, Chief Curator Pete Lesher and Marc Castelli, will be available in the gallery for purchase with all proceeds benefiting CBMM.
Judge North was instrumental in introducing Castelli to the world of log canoe racing resulting in scores of stunning watercolors over the last twenty years.
The Judge, an accomplished sculptor, will have work on loan from his private collection and Marc’s son, Ken Castelli will exhibit his new log canoe models.
5% of the proceeds from the sale of Castelli paintings will be donated to the CBMM.
