This past Sunday marked the official start to Summer, and evidence of the season is all around us. Tennis at Wimbledon is well underway, we are in the midst of the World Cup, and Independence Day is in a week!

Today we would like to add another summertime event to your calendar, with the announcement of the newest exhibition in the Gallery.

Sailing into Summer: One Hundred Years of Nautical Posters, is now on view in our New York City Gallery.

We are pleased to be highlighting over one hundred years of original vintage nautical posters. People have looked to the sea as a life source, inspiration, respite, and source of income for thousands of years. Whether a quaint wine shop in a port town, an invigorating spa away from the bustling city, or a passenger line encouraging customers to set sail for the New World, nautical imagery has been used in vintage posters consistently since it’s creation as a form of advertising.

Our visitors and clients have always been fond of nautical posters, and we are proud to highlight our wonderful collection.
