Richmond, California (EastBayDaily) — Point Richmond Art Collective, a Bay Area local artist group announces a special showing of artwork by maritime artist Jim DeWitt on Nov. 18. The exhibit will feature works that depict sailing in honor of the third leg of the 2011-2012 America’s Cup World Series, which will be held in San Diego and lead to the 34th America’s Cup in San Francisco in 2013. The America’s Cup World Series is a professional circuit that has been attracting sailing fans and non-sailors alike with its next-generation racing speed machines – the AC45 wing-sailed catamarans.
“If anybody can depict these spectacular racing machines, so we feel the rush of close competition in what apt to be adrenaline-pumping Bay conditions it’s Jim,” says Pamela DeWitt of Point Richmond Art Collective. “This should be an exciting and memorable artistic thrill-ride.”
In addition to being a renowned Bay Area marine artist, Jim DeWitt is a former sailing champion and San Francisco Bay is his own backyard. He’s won many championship races around San Francisco Bay buoys. His two loves are sailing and art and the upcoming exhibition will feature both.
