Toni the Turtle, by Arnold Desmarais. Minimum bid $800.

Cape Cod painter Arnold Desmarais loves the sea.  His well-known seascapes reflect the beauty and diversity of the coast.

A strong believer in giving back to the community, Mr. Desmarais was the first artist to donate work to the National Marine Life Center’s “Art for the Seas” event.  Wanting to contribute something special to this first annual art auction to help stranded marine animals on Cape Cod, Mr. Desmarais painted a piece entitled “Toni the Turtle” just for the occasion.

Art lovers and turtle aficionados alike are invited to bid on this one-of-a-kind painting.  The work will be auctioned at Art for the Seas on September 26.  Minimum bid $800.  For event tickets and information, click here.
