• Newburyport’s Custom House Maritime Museum (CHMM) invites artists of all ages to submit entries for our inaugural Fundraiser and Juried Art Auction titled New Perspectives on October 8, 2016.

• The New Perspectives event provides artists with a unique and highly visible platform to create and exhibit original works of art inspired by CHMM Maritime Day’s El Galeon visit and Newburyport’s rich maritime history.

• Artists will enter their original artworks to be juried by a panel of experts to be included in a calendar

• Proceeds from this year’s auction will be shared 50/50 with the artists.

• The New Perspectives event is open to all mediums and must be the artist’s original interpretation and their “New Perspective” of El Galeon and Newburyport’s rich maritime history.

• We encourage artists to visit El Galeon during Maritime Days, May 25-30, as this will be the optimal viewing of the ship where it will be docked in the Newburyport Harbor in honor of CHMM’s Maritime Days.

• A gallery of photos of the CHMM’s Maritime Days and of El Galeon will be made available on the CHMM website for inspiration for artists unable to view in person.

• First 100 works accepted.
