In commemoration of the 110th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, Lyme Art Association is pleased to present sea artlecture by maritime painter Marek Sarba on his memorial work And the band kept on playing. Join us on Thursday, July 14 from 7-8pm for this lively discussion of the Titanic’s voyage and its passengers and Marek’s dynamic painting that recalls the lives of those who perished.
Polish-born artist Marek Sarba uses his background as a navy sailor to inform his paintings, which capture the dynamic energy of the ocean and lead the viewer to experience the awe and beauty of ships at sea and the sea life. His works reflect the mystical power of the sea with a passion that only firsthand experience can produce.
