Guns Blazing Exhibit - 2019

Updated: Jun 19



Acclaimed maritime artist, Maarten Platje, devoted years of research to the creation of fifteen historically accurate and exquisitely visualized paintings of some of these battles. These paintings were on display at Twin Lights Lighthouse museum during the fall of 2019.


This exhibit was a collaboration between Navesink Maritime Heritage Association, Cavalier Galleries of New York, and Twin Lights Historical Society.


A specially produced companion guide is for sale and includes pictures of the paintings, the stories of the battles depicted in them, and essays on other aspects of The War of 1812.


The “Guns Blazing! The War of 1812” exhibit at Twin Lights Lighthouse museum closed on Nov. 22, 2019. We look forward to bringing many new and engaging exhibits to the site in the coming months.
