About the Artist

Marc Castelli has raced on various sailboats for 25 years. During that time he has photographed, drawn, and painted the boats he has raced and studied. His views speak of an intimacy that results from such a lengthy exposure.


Castelli has participated in or followed a range of fleets from the scows of the Midwest and S.O.R.C. boats of the 80's to the America's Cup boats, the racing log canoes of the Eastern Shore, and its workboats. He has covered the '92 and '95 America's Cup Challenge and Defenses for Sailing Magazine. In September 1997, Castelli was at the start of the Whitbread Round-the-World Race in Southampton, England.


His views speak to the large masses of sails, their particular shapes and their abstract potential. There is a magical quality to the light of the Eastern Shore and it has become a major influence on his work. While these painterly concerns are the main thrust of his style, it is his attention to the correctness of detail that has kept his work accessible.


Castelli's work can be seen at various galleries, national competitions and regional shows. They include the Carla Massoni Gallery, Chestertown, Maryland; Mid-Atlantic Maritime Festival, Easton, Maryland; Mystic International, Mystic, Connecticut; ASMA National Show; Seattle, Washington. and Jacksonville, Florida; Philadelphia Water Color Club, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and the National Watercolor Society, Norwalk, California.
