It ‘s one of our favourite treats to travel down to London every autumn to see the annual exhibition of the Royal Society of Marine Artists. It’s a fabulous show: a celebration of the sea in all its aspects, viewed through the eyes of some of the most accomplished artists in the country. We are delighted therefore to welcome the RSMA here to Staithes with this exhibition, CELEBRATING THE SEA, and to share that experience with our friends and visitors here.
