The exhibition’s focus is fine art that is inspired by the maritime Muses. Helena Fox has invited a group of premier contemporary representational marine and landscape artists, Kenn Backhaus, John Budicin, Donald Demers, West Fraser, Joseph McGurl, William McCullough, William R. Davis, Billyo O’Donnell and Kent Ullberg.  These friends come together at Helena Fox Fine Art, for an exhibition showcasing paintings and sculpture influenced by the allure of the sea, the vessels that navigate her waters and the shores that contain her seduction. Since the beginning of history, mankind has been inescapably drawn to the sea, acknowledging her beauty, her serenity, honoring her mystery and feasting on her bounty.  Homer has written in many passages of her seductive muses, and to this day men have been attracted to the vessels at work and play, the myriad flora and fauna, and the lush, luminous shores that contain this seductive maritime environment.
