The Old Royal Naval College Art Club is proud to present its annual art exhibition, an exciting display of maritime paintings and drawings from both award winning professional and amazingly talented amateur artists. From oil to watercolour, from harbour scenes to historical ships, open seas to muddy creeks, all aspects of marine art will be on display for you to view and buy.

Held in the Visitor Centre, this exhibition is free to visit.


The Art Club seeks to promote and encourage the creation of marine art through regular meetings, painting expeditions and lectures. The club meets at the Old Royal Naval College (ORNC) twice a month for painting and drawing sessions and all levels of experience are welcome. Find out more and join here.

We have recently included life drawing sessions to our repertoire and plan to add further variety to the range of our artistic endeavours. The lectures add to our knowledge and appreciation of art and have included celebrated marine artists such as Geoff Hunt PPRSMA, former President of the Royal Society of Marine Artists. This exhibition is a celebration of the efforts and talents of the club members over the past year.
