Our special art series, Behind the Canvas, continues Saturday, March 28 at 3 p.m. with Maritime Gallery artist Steven Kennedy's presentation, “Using Effective Color in your Plein Air Paintings." A master of atmosphere and light, Kennedy will demonstrate how he builds up his palette of colors while keeping simple shapes combined with the effective use of impressionistic brush strokes that create a quality of light. Tickets for the program are $20 ($15 for members); please call 860.572.5331 to register.

Even though snow is in the forecast for later today, the witch hazel bush by the Treworgy Planetarium reminds us that spring has finally arrived!

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, here's one of our favorite photos of SHAMROCK from the Museum's collection. This image shows the port view of SHAMROCK and COLUMBIA on starboard tack and was taken by Charles Edwin Bolles in 1899: http://bit.ly/1gywudH. (Mystic Seaport, 1947.1217.2)

Don't miss your chance to see MAYFLOWER II in our shipyard! The final day Museum visitors can board the ship is April 14 and she is scheduled to be launched April 15. In May the ship will return to Plymouth for summer and fall and then she will head back to Mystic Seaport next winter to continue her restoration: http://bit.ly/1McAa6t.

Despite the seemingly endless snow this winter, construction is moving right along on our new exhibition building and quad. We are excited to share our latest video, “A New Era for Exhibition: The Thompson Exhibition Building,” in which we discuss the Museum’s major project that will transform the north end of our campus. For additional information about the McGraw Gallery Quadrangle and Thompson Exhibition Building, including a project timeline and details about new exhibitions that will open later this year, please visit our website: www.mysticseaport.org/gallery-quad/
