Art Opening with local artist David Macomber Saturday, May 26th
On May 26th, 2018 from 3pm-6pm local artist, David Macomber, will be unveiling three original works of art in our gallery Splash. He will be on hand to discuss the inspiration behind his work and his upbringing as a Cape May local deeply embedded in the commercial fishing community.
David's Storms series is a metaphor for life and how we learn our best lessons from navigating stormy waters as opposed to calm seas. Coming from a commercial fishing family he understands first hand that all life revolves around the power of the sea, particularly in Cape May.
Prints and reproductions will also be available. Light refreshments will be served.
This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the completion of local landmark the S.S. Atlantus - the Concrete Ship. Launched December 5th, 1918, it is the most famous of the 12 concrete ships built by the Liberty Ship Building Company in Brunswick, Georgia.
In its heyday, the Atlantus was used to transport American troops home from Europe following World War I. Despite its crumbling condition 150 feet off the coast of Sunset Beach, the historical significance of the Atlantus as a vessel of homecoming and safe passage make it the perfect muse and worthy of David's brush.
Join us for an afternoon celebrating the local seafaring culture and one of Cape May's finest artists.
