Canada is a nation surrounded by water. It has more than 150,000 miles of shoreline, the longest of any nation in the world, with the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Arctic Ocean to the north. Throughout its history, Canada has a rich maritime tradition, from the first European voyageurs paddling native inspired canoes to the 1000 feet long commercial ore carriers plying the Great Lakes today. Beginning November 7 and running through March 2, 2017 at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum is Jack Gray and Other Canadian Marine Artists. On exhibit are paintings by historic and contemporary Canadian marine artists. Their subjects include sea shores, rivers, historical scenes, commercial and recreational sailing and fishing upon Canadian waters. Each artist uses their own personal style to depict a unique aspect of Canadian waters. For more information, go to www.mmam.org.
