National Museum of Naval Aviation - Art Exhibition

Yesterday I received confirmation that the two paintings I entered into this years juried art exhibition have both been accepted. Needless to say I'm very pleased and proud of this.

On Final

This painting shows a Grumman F9F-2 Panther (Bu123600) of VF191 on final to land on the USS Princeton, CV-37, in Korean Waters, April 1951. Oil on canvas 24" x 16". This painting was displayed at the 2007 American Society of Aviation Artists forum and was awarded a Silver ASAA Founders Award.

Into The Storm

An A6 Intruder over Vietnam December 1971. This painting featured in early postings and is oil on canvas, 36" x 28". The original is available for purchase, and I'm currently offering a limited edition giclee print.

The exhibition is at the National Museum of Naval Aviation, Pensacola, Florida, USA. It opens on Wednesday 6th May, in conjunction with the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation’s 2009 Symposium which runs from 6th to 8th May. This year’s program is “Something New in the Air: An Exciting Look at the Latest in Naval Aviation” and “Valiant Rescue Attempt: North Vietnam". The art exhibition itself runs through to April 2010.
