A Bit About the Artists:
C.R. Bryant: If your interests involve coastal art - Marine art - classic sailing yachts -historical Marine art or portraits and figurative paintings of life on or near the sea, we encourage you follow C.R. Bryant. He is actively involved in fundraising opportunities using his Marine art to support historical Marine tradition and preservation of classic yachts.
Louis Guarnaccia: As a young man he also studied under master artists Dean Keller, Ken Davies, and Rudolph Zallinger at the Paier College of Art in Hamden, CT. After art school, Louis continued painting both landscapes and portraits, in addition to working as an illustrator, art director, and creative director at various advertising agencies in New England.
Russ Kramer: His unique vision creates first-hand experiences for the viewer, putting you right on board during some of history’s greatest races. A sense of the dramatic moment, combined with meticulous research and attention to detail, have found wide appeal. Self-taught, he is thrilled by his early success, and is committed to learning as much as possible and becoming as good as he can be in his newest –- and final – career, as a marine artist.
Jeffrey Sabol: From an early age, he was fascinated by the ever-changing reflections of the boats at anchor in the harbor. This fascination is translated by his unique interpretation of line and shadow which appear almost abstract in his startingly realistic work. His paintings are an exercise in tranquility and gentle motion, as they study the lightness of line.
