About the Sea unites a diverse collection of artists from New York and New England whose work addresses the elemental, poetic, practical and other-worldly aspects of the ocean. Illuminated blown-glass jellyfish, kinetic sculpture, water and erosion-scapes in oil and monotype, a stacked glass wall, flotsam portraits and an installation of friction-polished clay stones will be featured.
