The exhibition will be on display at the Mall Galleries near Trafalgar Square between October 15 and 26.

Two of Mr Brown’s large and colourful oil paintings will be shown in the exhibition, ‘Rocks and Floats II’ and ‘Beached, San Cyprianu’. More of Gareth’s work can be seen on his website www.garethbrownartist.co.uk

This annual exhibition, held by the Royal Society of Marine Artists, has come to be recognised as the most prestigious and varied exhibition of marine art in the UK. The exhibition’s theme is the sea and everything related to it, from beaches and creeks to harbours and boats.

It will feature over 300 works from emerging and well-established artists across a range of media, including oil painting, watercolour, pastels, prints, and sculpture. All work is available for sale, so anyone can take some of the sea home with them.
