Artist, John Ruseau

For over 40 years, John has graced Hartge Yacht Yard with drawings and paintings of images of and around our boatyard. His artwork is featured on our annual calendar and is a daily reminder of the distinct beauty of our river and the Chesapeake Bay.

John enjoyed a long career as a Professor of Architecture at the University of Virginia, Alex's Alma Mater. With encouragement from Alex, John relocated his boat to the West River and has been sailing and painting from our shores ever since.

Please enjoy this small collection, they're just a few examples of the artwork that John has provided for us.

John Ruseau's paintings are featured at the Annapolis Marine Art Gallery on Dock Street.
