For Art’s Sake: Art at Ocean House

This winter, we welcomed Jeanne Potter, to the Ocean House family as the Resident Curator & Director of Art Education.

A local artist with a long-standing tenure as the Director of the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport, the leading gallery of contemporary marine art in America, Jeanne brings with her a wealth of experience and talent that makes her a perfect fit for the art program at Ocean House. In her new role, Jeanne continues a summertime tradition – the Artist in Residence Series – in addition to introducing a number of exciting art events throughout the year.

May 7: How Artists Make Art – Russ Kramer
Russ hosts a presentation of his dynamic oil paintings, depicting historic America’s Cup races and other yachting scenes. The discussion focuses on the stories behind the paintings, anecdotes about the famous boats and crews, plus a behind-the-scenes look at the complicated process Russ employs in developing the paintings – his inspirations, research and methods. Several of his works will be on display.
