"In American Waters" highlights American art historical and cultural traditions associated with the sea, deepening our understanding of it as a symbol of American ambition, opportunity and invention.

For more than 200 years, American painters have been inspired to capture the beauty, violence, poetry and transformative power of the sea in American life. Their images of the sea have also expressed ambitions beyond America’s borders in aesthetically and conceptually distinctive ways. In American Waters offer a more inclusive way of thinking about American marine painting by reconsidering national symbols and narratives, origin stories, coastlines, horizons and ports, and broadening the conversation to embrace perspectives on the Middle Passage, immigration and Indigenous presence.

University of Arkansas Press spotlight author, Austen Barron Bailly, will discuss In American Waters: The Sea in American Painting. Experience a wide range of modern and historical American artists and the ways the mystery and power of the sea continues to be an inspiration.

 

Austen Barron Bailly, PhD, is chief curator of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
