CHRISTOPHER BLOSSOM

~ Retrospective Exhibition ~

The Salmagundi Club, New York City, May, 2009


The Exhibition featured 20 paintings from the artist's illustrious career, borrowed from collectors and galleries, and was held in the newly refurbished Patron's Gallery at The Salmagundi Club. Included were examples of the masterful marine paintings for which he is acclaimed, from the dramatic view of the Australian Grain Ship, the GRACE HARWAR in the monstrous seas of the Southern Ocean, a voyage made famous by Alan Villiers' book "By Way of Cape Horn," to the Steamer PAVONIA in Boston Harbor, seen in the bright orange twilight. Historic recreations of the Gloucester Fishing Schooners of the East Coast to the distinctive vessels of the West Coast and San Francisco Bay, along with his working preparatory sketches, were also on view. Also included were his Western and European Landscapes depicting inland and coastal scenes from Colorado, Maine, France and the Bahamas. Presented in conjunction with the 2nd Annual American Masters Exhibition, Chris Blossom's Retrospective was the first opportunity for collectors and connoisseurs to experience a full range of this artist's unique accomplishments.
