Winchester Galleries is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition Maritime Impressions artwork by John HortonHorton's lifelong love affair with the sea and maritime industries is readily apparent in his paintings and his lifestyle. He joined the Royal Navy at 16 and served in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Arctic. Since moving to Canada in 1966, he has devoted over 35 years to volunteer search and rescue on the Fraser River. He has travelled the waters of British Columbia, Washington, and Alaska, producing a scrupulously realistic body of work, from workboats to a series of paintings depicting Captain George Vancouver's discovery of the west coast of North America. Horton's oils are highly prized by museums and private collectors all over the world. He is a recipient of the Queen's Gold Jubilee Medal and he is the subject of the book John M. Horton, Mariner Artist.
