AFTER a whirlwind year jetsetting around the world, artist Shane Couch is back on the Island ­— and showcasing his work this month.

Shane ­— who has been travelling around the world with the International Schooner Association as their official artist on their regatta and racing circuit ­— will be bringing his exhibition, entitled A Different View Point, to Seaview Art Gallery.

Running from February 14 to 24, Shane revisits local bays, capturing the Sea View One-Designs, Mermaid boats and their colourful hulls.

Taking a break from his technically detailed Schooners and J Class masterpieces, he has gone back to his watery roots, so visitors should expect beautifully captured Island coastal views, sublime wave studies and glittering water.

Shane has been invited to join the American Society of Marine Artists, has exhibited at Rountree Tryon galleries, and has won the best yachting painting award from the Mystic Seaport Museum of America.
