Annie Strack USCG Art Gallery


The Coast Guard Art Program (COGAP) uses fine art as an outreach tool for educating diverse audiences about the United States Coast Guard. Through public displays at museums, galleries, and patriotic events, Coast Guard art tells the story of the service's missions, heroes, and history. Coast Guard artists are professional artists who donate their time and talents to help COGAP tell the story of the Coast Guard. I'm often invited to accompany USCG units on specific missions so that I can shoot reference photos and gather the information I need to create the paintings for this important national collection.

I'm both honored and proud to be an Official, Authorized Artist for the USCG.

All paintings on this page are in the permanent public collection of the United States Coast Guard.
