ILLUSTRATED NEWBURYPORT

 

Newburyport Through The Years

Featuring artist extraordinaire,

Blake Hughes

 

Best known for his impeccable illustrations of Newburyport and New England, Blake has penned and colored a range of artistic subjects in his Newburyport Through The Years print collection representing almost every era of its existence.

Come and discover the amazing realm of his distinctive, warm and gentle artistry, from pen and ink to watercolor to oil on canvas works, including the original art for Blake's immensely popular limited edition illustration Newburyport Waterfront, created in 1983 -- nearly 10-feet in length -- and formally exhibited for the first time ever at this Custom House Maritime Museum 250th Anniversary Exhibition.
