About the Artist
Lizbeth Maxson-McGee is a long-time resident of Groton with ties to the maritime world dating back generations. During the Civil War, her great-great grandfather was co-owner of the Mystic shipyard that built the “Galena” an iron-clad vessel. In “Our Silent Service” she has dedicated her work to those who with courage and confidence sail beneath the distant seas and surface under the canopy of stars.

Opening Reception: Friday, August 4, 5 – 8 pm.

There is no cost for museum entry or to view the artwork.
