NEW ARTIST: William Beebe

We are pleased to announce a new addition to our stable of exceptional marine painters, William Beebe.

A traditional realist, William paints exclusively in oil as he feels it is the best medium to capture the historical wooden schooners of the 19th and 20th centuries.

A graduate of the University of Maryland in Fine Art, his work has been shown at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine and at the Coos Art Museum in Coos Bay, Oregon, where he won a Merit award in the 12th Annual Maritime Art Exhibition. Additionally, he has been a part of several Marine Masters Exhibitions in Mystic, Connecticut and Thomaston, Maine and the 26th Annual International Marine Art Exhibition at the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport.

Bill currently resides in Williamsburg, Virginia with his wife where he continues his marine painting and to be inspired by his love for the American schooners and life along the coast.
