Art at Spicer Mansion

From the moment you step foot in Spicer Mansion, its rich sense of maritime history is evident, from the classic, nautical touches throughout the estate to the intricate maritime and coastal landscape paintings adorning the freshly refurbished walls.

The artwork, with statement-making gilded frames, pays homage to renowned sea captain and namesake Elihu Spicer and celebrates Mystic’s storied history as a seafaring community. Of the nearly 50 paintings sourced from leading galleries throughout the region, oil on canvas is the most prevalent medium, while several pastels on paper are on display in The Restaurant.

For the fine art collector, all of the paintings on display are available for purchase. Please enquire at Spicer Mansion’s reception desk for specific pricing information, or contact Jeanne Potter, Resident Curator and Director of Art Education, at jpotter@oceanhouseri.com to learn more about the Mansion’s partnership with local galleries.
