Welcome To PRIMA On Line


PRIMA exists to celebrate human diversity through the lens of fine art

 with a specific attention to marine and maritime artists living on or near the PACIFIC RIM,

the Pacific Ocean being our common thread.

Of Note :  If you view the Pacific Ocean from space our land masses only begin to show at the very edge of the circumference

The Pacific Ocean is almost one half the surface Earth.

PRIMA is composed of Member Countries within or bordering on the Pacific Ocean.


For each Member "Country", PRIMA founders have designated a single artist to head that country's

artist community and represent that collective with the designation of Fellow. Under special circumstances there may be more

 than one Fellow named per "country" where a region is either unique enough or remotely located within the Pacific Rim such as

Hawaii, Guam or American Samoa.


Each Fellow may elect to recommend various levels of membership to PRIMA for their Country and

pass on the request to the Board of Directors at PRIMA in the USA for consideration.


PRIMA Governance will reside within the United States where PRIMA was founded in 2016 as a Non Profit 501C Corporation

Chinese Language

Marine Art or Maritime Art?
The answer is actually both. Maritime tends to describe boats and ships while Marine leans toward living things and the environment of the sea.
