The exhibition will feature 17 pieces from the collection and ten available for sale. Prints of John Barber’s paintings will also be available for purchase from the Annapolis Marine Art Gallery. 

Dr. George Schonholtz expressed his and Joan’s immense satisfaction that their cherished collection of maritime art has found a permanent home at the Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park. He hopes that future viewers of these works will derive as much joy from them as they have throughout their time with the collection.
