His action-packed paintings have been recognized by three U.S. Presidents. The prestigious National Geographic Magazine commissioned his works to accompany WWII stories. William Randolph Hearst called him a friend and one of the best illustrators at Hearst Newspapers. Admiral William Leahy, the most senior active-duty military officer of WWII, appointed him the official artist of the U.S. Navy Fleet.

Now Arthur Beaumont’s paintings are on display at Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum, and Arthur’s son, Geoffrey Beaumont, is sharing captivating stories of his dad’s daring adventures. Join us in celebrating Arthur Beaumont and his Art of the Sea!

We invite you into the museum to enjoy over three dozen dynamic Arthur Beaumont paintings. You can experience interactive naval demonstrations with Ships of the Sea's interpreters and purchase the collection’s illustrated book. You can also treat yourself to signature cocktails and music reminiscent of the 1940s. 

The party begins on Thursday, April 6 at 5:30 p.m. Tickets to the event are $15 and can be ordered in advance through Eventbrite or purchased at the door. Geoffrey Beaumont will speak starting at 6:30 p.m. A cash bar will be available.

The celebration, including one signature cocktail, is free to Ships of the Sea members! Members, please RSVP to
